Illinois Canyonlands

When you think of Illinois, you may likely think of corn or Chicago. Tucked away about an hour north of Normal, Illinois (where Iā€™m currently based) are some of the most spectacular glacial canyons in the midwest. A popular tourist destination, I approach this landscape in a contemporary sense, similar to how I approach national parks. Looking for more intimate scenes and pops of color, the echoing chambers of stone still call my name.
