This was done this past weekend, I met up with a large group of models in one of the 7 wonders of Illinois called Starved Rock.

Photographer: Kenny Yu
Models from left to right:
Bianca Green, Chrystal Cho Jones, and Tai Hunn

Canon EOS 40D
Photoshop cs5

The park is 2,630 acres (10 km²) in size and includes 13 miles (21 km) of hiking trails, numerous waterfalls (ice falls in winter) and other landforms. The park contains 18 sandstone canyons carved over the last 12,000 years by a combination of surface water runoff and groundwater outflow. Starved Rock is a large eroded butte overlooking the Illinois River. Starved Rock was designated a U.S. National Historic Landmark in 1960.
