Clinton Lake, Illinois Haunting View

Came across this wonderful B&W image of a cove at Clinton Lake, my favorite paddling lake in Illinois. It shows the water low, and the eerie nature of the trees in this man-made lake. The coves are numerous, and most have this haunting silhouette of how things were before the area was flooded.

This photo is by Matt Needham, professional photographer.

A trip report of my lastest paddle on Clinton Lake this autumn with friends, LittleRed, TrailMom and TimS is here:

Beautiful photograph that demonstrates the power of black and white (if done well). This picture would lose much of its impact if printed in color. HArd to find good B&W subjects as it take a special photographic eye. Need to look for contrasts and texture, which is atypical for most of us.

Good points WFF re black n white. Mine seem not as dark. Not as much contrast as these prof shots. Might be me or camera. Yea. Likely camera. I like black and white photos. I will call you this week to shoot the shit.
