The photo was taken at the Illinois Beach State Park in Zion, Illinois (Lake County). This is located on the shore of Lake Michigan approximately five miles south of the Illinois-Wisconsin border. Since you can’t get down to the water at this point, it’s all large rocks on the other side of the wall, it makes a nice place to sit and watch the waves. Although you don’t see them in this photo, there were some nice waves the day I took this photo.
The photo was taken using a Nikon Coolpix P7700 camera. I used Macphun’s Luminar for Windows 1.0 to apply the ‘Image Enhancer’ preset.
