I just ran across some photos I had taken late in the spring at Hoffman Hills Recreation Area. I’m a little behind on some of my photo processing.

Prairie Smoke

Prairie Smoke

Backlit leaves are one of my favorite subjects in the spring and Hoffman Hills is one of my favorite places to photograph them. Unfortunately the bad weather prevented me from getting out much. When I did make it to Hoffman Hills I found that the DNR had done a controlled burn in the prairie area and most of the Popular trees were in bad shape. I did find a few in the wetlands to photograph.

With the controlled burn many of the early flowers were abundant although it was a little messy to photograph them because every time I kneeled down I was covered with black from the fire. It was a little difficult photographing because of strong winds in the prairie.
