On Sunday, July 28, 2013, I took a drive through Emiquon and shot several landscapes with gorgeous billowing clouds in the background. I started out on Clark Road, then drove to Prairie Road, where I took some photos of the scrolling flowers growing up the bluff. I ended the trip by driving back on County 9 and took a photo of the field that is still full of water after the spring floods.
