I took this picture two weeks ago at the Fort Sheridan Forest Preserve in Highland Park. Earlier this week--from that same bluff--I videotaped the big waves on Lake Michigan caused by Hurricane Sandy.
The trees here are sumacs and cottonwoods. I used a film grain filter from PhotoShop Elements for this photograph.
