Chicago Skyline at Sunset Seen from Indiana Dunes 8398

Having glimpsed the Chicago skyline from Indiana Dunes State Park early on the afternoon of June 17th, we went a little further west later in the day and staked out a high place at the Portage Lakefront from which to view what we hoped would be a good sunset. It was.

As in the previous photograph, a telephoto lens made things seem larger and closer than they really were.

Ocotillo Silhouetted Against Sunset in Big Bend National Park 0190

Let’s end 2015 with a photograph taken as the last light of the day I spent in Big Bend National Park on November 22 silhouetted some stalks of ocotillo, Fouquieria splendens.

May the coming year find you in your prime, even if 2016 = 2 • 2 • 2 • 2 • 2 • 3 • 3 • 7 and is therefore far from prime.
