In Wisconsin, we cherish our summers as they are far too short (or is the winter that's too long). We revel in being outdoors, heading 'north' to spend time on one of the 17,000 lakes in the state. For me, sunrise is my favorite time to be on the water. The wildlife is waking for another day. The wind is calm and the water is still except for the small waves of your boat slowly trolling, cutting through the calm water. The waves that form make symmetrical patterns in the water colored by your surroundings . . . green trees, blue sky, the rainbow of colors at sunrise. The colors and light dance with the patterns of the waves. It's almost puts you in a trance and you can't help but become captivated by the abstract patterns that are formed and constantly change.
The images presented here are reminiscent of that early morning scene.
