Countryside Rays

Countryside Rays, originally uploaded by jw_creations.

Taken enroute to Governor Dodge State Park in the driftless zone of southern Wisconsin. Note the stands of three different tree species along the bottom of this shot.

This sunny Friday was particularly humid due to warm temperatures and excessive snow meltoff, which produced well contrasted rays of light beneath the clouds.

Helena Unit Lower Wisconsin State Riverway

Helena Unit Lower Wisconsin State Riverway viewed from the Shot Tower and Smelter House at Tower Hill State Park.

The Spring Green water tower is visible on the opposite side of the Wisconsin River on the left-hand side of this photo.

The hills visible in the distance mark the edge of the flat, ancient Wisconsin River floodplain which cut through the hills of the Driftless Zone over the span of several ice ages.
