Going downstate last week, there were some great stormy skies in Central Illinois. Getting off the interstate helped to find some more scenic foregrounds. McLean County has provided some great subjects over the years, so here are some images from this week and past years. The first are from this week, where you can see the crops are very late this year because of too much rain to get the seeds in.
Near Funks Grove is a delightful little nature center called Sugar Grove. They put out a lot of bird feeders, so it’s a great spot to find some birds. Hummingbirds were swarming around the feeders at this lovely view.
The summer clouds are irresistible.
The McLean County History Museum is in the old courthouse in downtown Bloomington.
