Eerie on Erie

Uploaded: May 22, 2014 06:36:01 | Entered: May 22, 2014 06:36:01


On a recent sunny day, we headed north to the shores of Lake Erie (about 45 minutes). A stop at Lakeshore Park in Ashtabula, Ohio, turned up this pair of trees. Turned into B&W and then a negative, they took on a sort of eerie look. Appropriate, I guess, given the location! Have a wonderful Thursday, everyone!
