A Golden Aura

Posted by Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 23 October 2012 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Revisiting the Maple Grove Forest Preserve near Gilbert Park in Downers Grove two weeks later. It was amazing how the colors changed with the trees giving the preserve a golden "aura" of sorts.
