The warm sun beats through the windshield.

The breeze filters through the windows.

The temperature, all told, is perfect.

The crickets are chirping in the corn field.

The air is clear and smooth.

I'm drowsy.

I think I'm going to nap for a while. There is nowhere I'd rather be.

Central Illinois.

I'm not sure what these plants are, but I really enjoyed them. They appear yellow when you look down on them from above and green from below. The middling range was as high up as I could get Boxer.

You'll notice that if you click on images, it will link to high res versions of the same, in case you want a desktop picture or to go get it printed at Kinko's or something.

I took way to many pictures of this, having fun with the camera. It is just so satisfying to feel that shutter click.

All told, today was tame compared to the past couple of days. Just a nice relaxing drive through central Illinois.

The first thing I noticed when I was driving through Springfield Illinois was the power plant. The second thing I noticed was that the power plant was not nuclear. The third thing I noticed was the nice lake next to it.

I had some more fun with the camera, experimenting with the wide angle lens and the expressiveness in the clouds.

The sun was probably about an hour from setting and I was feeling drowsy again. I decided to pull off the road so I could fade in and out of consciousness in the cornfields until it came time to take some pictures. Once again, I love how expressive the clouds are.

To be fair, I did some photoshop work on this one. I darkened the ground around Boxer's feet as the flash caught that as well as him and it is not the focus of the picture.
