Beautiful Walkabout

2/27/2013 Beautiful Walkabout

My beautiful walkabout this afternoon took me by Blackberry Creek.  Blackberry Creek winds though the towns and countryside near my home.  My walkabouts sometimes encounter the creek at different places.  On this day, snow had fallen overnight and the weather was below IFR minimums, that is, 200 foot ceiling and 1/2 mile visibility, in blowing snow.  What most would call a grey day.  It’s not often, I capture a B&W nature image that I like in Illinois.  Black & white just seemed like a better way to show my mind’s eye.  And, I did not even get my feet wet!
