The Chicago area received a decent Lake Effect snow this last week. While out, I saw the chance to take some really fun stock images and textures in the snowy landscapes and ground cover. I have already set aside the ones I will be using in future projects, but here are some free stock images that will likely be useful for someone out there. I hope you enjoy and plan to be adding several more soon. Also, more winter stock images of Chicago and Naperville will be added in the coming days.
