This is Holy Hill Basilica located in Hubertus Wisconsin approximately 30 miles northwest of Milwaukee. The photo was taken approximately 30 minutes before sunset during a mid-June trip I made to photograph the church interior and surrounding grounds. I shot this from a side road location about 1 mile from the structure and my original plan was to get this shot with sunrise light. I got up at 4 a.m., was on site by 4:45 a.m., but the entire grounds were completely covered with fog. I went back that evening and was blessed with beautiful sunset light.

I saw this DC 3 on an airstrip in Ottawa Il. It's in pretty bad shape, never to fly again. I looked up it's tail numbers on my smartphone. It started it's life in 1940 at Delta. If only airplanes could talk.
