Silver Creek - McHenry County Conservation District

Half Dome - Ansel Adams

Half Dome - Ansel Adams

The explorations of John Muir and the photography of Ansel Adams have been a great inspiration on my photographic career. Growing up, and still living in the suburbs of Chicago, the vast natural playgrounds that those two I previously mentioned spent much of their lives in seems like a world far far away from where I am. That is until I brought my first house in Cary, Illinois. I may not have the Half Dome from Yosemite National Park within reach, but what I do have is a great system of parks known as the McHenry County Conservation District. And with it being 50 degrees on a late December day (I don't get it), I figured what a great time to head out and explore!
