Today in exciting Illinois I shot the exotic wildlife that graces our state. First time I got to use the tripod mount for my 70-200f4L though, so that was fun.

Then while my adrenalin was still rushing, I shot some of the breathtaking local architecture

Truly God outdid himself when he created our fine state.

You should drive down to the Mississippi in the spring when the pelicans stop by.

Here are a couple of crane shots. I have more but they are still on my other card. One is a Blue Herring the others are Sandhills Over the years it was rare to see either one around this town. This year I have seen 100's of the Sandhills and at least a dozen Blue Herrings.

Here's a link to the fall color chgs in WI Fall Color Update

That map is what I was looking for last week. Thanks Bob!

In spite of all the commentary that the peak is going to come early, I'm still inclined to stick with our original plan of October 14 with the meeting place being the parking area at the south bank of the Wisconsin River where the ferry docks (see google map elsewhere in the thread), shoot around there for awhile, cross on the ferry and head up to the south entrance of the park.

Ferry crossing is free.
State park passes are $7.00 for the day

Once in the park, there are a couple of different hikes we can choose from, all of which offer great scenic possibilities.

I bought a annual pass back in May. So I am good to go.

I also went shopping for a backpack today but our local store doesn't have one big enough to hold all of my current + future gear. Will be taking a trip into Pewaukee or Waukesha this weekend to look around.

Ideally, everyone who comes can pile into one or two vehicles to drive up to the park and save on sticker fees. I nominate your vehicle as one of the car pools. ;-)

Here's another fall color report that supports the choice of Oct 14 at the date.

Scroll down to the South region and look at the entries, re: Baraboo.
09/25/2006 12:38:19 PM · #63
this is the one my wife has bookmarked. It has been spot on the past 2 years.

edit. Just looked at it. If it is as accurate as last year colors might only be 50-60% on the 14th.

edit again , being football season. I do not mind a little green in the scene.

Bump. Sent a PM to all potential attendees. Let me know if you want in. I'll keep posting updates here.

Well it looks like the wife and I should be able to make it up there. I will PM you strangehost. I think it would be kinda of cool learning and comparing notes. Plus maybe I will actually learn something about this new cam of mine.

Thanks. What I get for posting before finishing the morning espresso fix.

Don't know about you guys, but I think we will be walking away with much better photos than those heheheh.

Anyone know 'the' spot for sunset?

Looking at your profile it might be the other way around Sire.

And if it is moved up a week I won't be able to attend. Sorry guys but I have some hot models showing up at my studio on the 7th and 8th. I will be too dang busy.

Seeing the Packers getting their asses kicked reminded me to check this thread. I've actually got Thurs/Fri off this week so one way or another I plan on driving somewhere and doing some shooting.

Any update on if the date has been moved forward?
