Empty docks mean the winter is on its way. The day after this photo was taken, the snows started. While the lake is no longer busy, the fall colors in Wisconsin’s Northwoods are stunning and this resort will be crowded for the next few weeks.
When staying in Minocqua, WI, I usually get up early in the morning to catch a sunrise or see the lake looking like a mirror. On this day the mist was added to the atmosphere of the lake.
This is three photographs taken at different exposures on order to get a nice image of the docks regardless of the mist.
