    Great shots. Mind if I ask where the waterfall shots were taken?

    Thanks! They were shot at Starved Rock State Park. There are numerous waterfalls in the park, some of them require strenuous hikes to get to them. There are dozens of canyons in the park, I believe I shot these waterfalls in LaSalle Canyon, or something like that. Just be careful and stay on the main trails (marked), the unmarked ones get very dangerous... I made the mistake of taking a few unmarked trails...

    I KNEW I RECOGNIZED EM! :lol: I'm VERY close to Starved Rock! I have pictures of that waterfall! :lol: I thought it was the same one! I was right! haha. Unfortunately, most of the times I've gone to Starved Rock in the past couple of years, it has been during times of NO RAINFALL and I haven't been able to get any good waterfall shots like I'd like to.

    It's funny, because I was thinking earlier today about finding someone to go to Starved Rock with me soon. :)

    You might not have that great of a camera, but underexposure is operator error.

    Thanks! The Black Hawk statue is actually in Oregon, IL, about 2 hours north of Starved Rock. :wink:
