Wild Chicago in the Winter

I was at both Gillson Park and Montrose Harbor and was amazed to see the wildlife.  I never saw wild swans at Gillson Beach before, let alone a huge hawk and opossum hanging out at Montrose Harbor.

Glencoe and Tower Beaches in the Winter

It was a warmer winter day in the Chicagoland area when I decided to stop by at both Glencoe and Tower Beaches on the Northshore.

The lake was frozen over going about mile out, with icebergs frozen in place. I wish I go there a little earlier to capture the shadows as the sun set, yet I think these images tell a pretty good story.

How I wish I could be in Hawaii, yet if you just use your imagination with these pictures you can almost feel the warmth of the sun.
