Burnham Woods Elgin, Illinois

Burnham Woods Fall 2007 008 One of my favorite places in the world.  It is a small wonder but its peace and quiet is beyond all.   I have finally captured all of the seasons there and I am still working on Winter and fog.  Fog was almost done.  I went there on the foggiest of days but a sin occurred.  I did not bring a camera and so I missed the greatest shots.  I will continue to stalk there and of course the lesson learned again I will bring the camera.   I have a small one but I can only go there during my lunch hour before it gets dark during the winter so sometimes it is too much to bring it along.  I use a DMC  07 for my pocket camera and the photos are spectacular for such a small piece.  I do use a heavy tripod when I bring it along.  I had a small Velbron but it seems as though that is just to flimsy.  So I use the big one. 

I can not describe the peace it brings over me and when I am setting up shots I get so involved the afternoon is gone and I have enjoyed every minute of it.  There will certainly be more shot of this place.  I thought I saw a crane there once so you know I will be on the constant look out for it.
