A Golden Medley

Posted by Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 22 October 2012 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Revisiting the Maple Grove Forest Preserve near Gilbert Park in Downers Grove two weeks later. This view was shot just as I was entering the forest preserve.

It was amazing how the colors changed in the trees giving the preserve a golden "aura" of sorts as I walked deeper into the woods.

I absolutely love this scene, Steven - the yellow trees and the bridge make for an incredible composition. I'd have to clone out that sign though. LOL
