With the long awaited coming of April, I thought I'd share an April shot from a few years back. This is the Atlantic Ocean at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, in April of 2011. The sun was about to rise on a beautiful day. Tranquility reigned.

Spring is finally coming to East Central Illinois, after the worst winter we've had in the almost 15 years I've lived here. This view of High Cross Road road north of Urbana doesn't quite look like this yet, but it's coming. I can't wait.

This is a moody picture of a drainage canal in East-Central Illinois, just south of Ludlow. I like the lines created by the walls of the canal, and foreboding nature of the clouds. This is from a January when we weren't snowed in all month, unlike this year.

This is an old barn and grain bin, apparently still in use, on a farm in far eastern Illinois, northwest of Oakwood. It's a beautiful old building, but it's hard to imagine it can last much longer. Buildings like this still exist on farms across Illinois, but they are fast disappearing, being replaced with generic pole buildings like the one in the background here. It has to happen, agriculture is a business after all, but it's a real shame to see some of these beautiful old buildings go.

This is the entrance to Big Thompson Canyon, which leads from Loveland, Colorado, up into the Rockies to Estes Park. The Big Thompson river is on the right. The road is US 34.

This is the cemetery at Creede in the southern Colorado, in the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Creede was a big mining town in the late 1800s, and now is just a small town. My grandparents were raised here, and one of my great uncles is buried in this little old cemetery.
