I took a walk recently along the Rock River, from the River Road bridge on the southern edge of Janesville, Wisconsin in the USA, toward the little town of Afton, Wisconsin. It was a beautiful warm summer morning in August, 2015. It was pleasant to be beside the river, and just generally nice to be alive. It was perfect.
I wanted to make some landscape images of the river and the trees that line its banks. Eventually, the sun had risen high enough that the nice soft golden hour light was replaced with the (seemingly) x-ray glare of mid-summer on a hot day. I headed back and along the way I chased some bee pictures, photographed some flowers, and just generally had a super time.
