Love :: Big Country Weekend

Spent the weekend in central Illinois. Answered trivia for charity, sang karaoke, visited a family pumpkin farm, saw a Civil War reenactment and learned how to needlepoint. The landscape is so flat and open here, you can really shoot some big, flat vistas, punctuated with the occasional vertical element: grain elevator, barn, windmill or water tower. And the colors of Illinois (and the midwest in general) are disctinctive: light-golden hues with black soil, green leaves and clear blue skies.

Here's the photo essay:

Thanks for a great weekend, M!

UPDATE :: The next to the last photo is an Indian Mound -- meant to add that in the post!
