One of the best parts of writing for Only in Your State is that I get to look at beautiful photos. I’ve discovered that there are some really, really, really good photographers lurking in Illinois. So I’ve rounded up thirteen of the best shots of Illinois I have discovered during my time writing. Enjoy!

As always, please share on our Facebook page any great photos you’ve taken of Illinois! We’d love to see them.
