Today we welcome Michael Anderson and his images of the Illinois landscape.
This roadside glacial kame rises in the center of a field in McHenry County, Illinois. Glacial kames formed when meltwater deposited washed material along melting ice, creating mounds or hills.
Old growth in the Midwest has almost entirely disappeared. This 350-year-old white oak in Northern Illinois stands just beyond the boundary of a nature preserve.
These are gorgeous. And sad, I’m worried about that white oak.
Thanks, Kate. I’m worried about it, too.
Beautiful. I especially love the reflection of the clouds in the water in the 3rd photo, and in the middle photo, the intricate texture
of the the oak rising out of the soft green.
