Today’s featured photo of the day! Obscure Darkroom Magic

Here is today’s featured photo. I am featuring an extra special event of featuring a reflection of my favorite part of being in the darkroom…making art out of a regular photo! Here is another set of photos of a vivid sunset at Bullfrog Lake in the Palos area of the Cook County Forest Preserves in Illinois. How breathtaking! Date – 1981.
