Winter Wonderland

Posted on by Angela Kauffman

Snow has been falling all day here in Illinois.  For many, that would mean the perfect opportunity to snuggle inside a warm home.  But for me, that meant braving the weather (and the roads!) to go 'picture hunting.'  I went to one of my favorite spots - a nearby lake - to see what kind of winter wonderland I could find.  I was the only soul there (of course, because everyone else was snuggled inside their warm homes) and the quietness seemed so loud.  In fact, it was so quiet that I jumped a couple of times at the startling sound of animals popping in and out of the icy lake.  But the quietness of a snowfall brings so much serenity and peace with it, don't you agree?

To The Sea

Posted on by Angela Kauffman

A couple of weeks ago, I went to a lake with my family.  We're not just talking about any old lake here - we're talking one of the Great Lakes, Lake Michigan.  Lake Michigan is (of course) great and absolutely huge.  There are miles of beautiful beaches stretched along its shore.  The Midwest is not what comes to mind when thinking about beautiful beaches, but trust me, it has plenty.  We were fortunate enough to have access to a private beach.  It was so relaxing to sprawl out and have the space almost completely to ourselves.  I don't know if there is anything better than watching the crashing waves, digging your toes in the sand, having beach bonfires at night and doing it all with the people you love.  Oh, and photographing it all. :)
