January 2018 - A New Year

A new year, with new opportunities to challenge myself and to experiment.  A year that started out with my camera in one of the local forest preserves taking pictures.

I followed the trail for a while but it quickly got too cold.  A lot people had the same idea and I could see tracks from people, dogs, and bicycles in the snow.  I took some pictures of one of the bridges over the Des Plaines River along the trail, the river itself was frozen over.  It seemed like a good metaphor for crossing over into the new year. 

As I walked back to my car, I saw some leaves sitting on top of the snow -- the last vestiges of fall resting on the first real snow of winter.
