Wisconsin River Bottoms

This is a picture I made in the late fall while on an early morning hike into the Wisconsin River Bottoms. I love the mystery of these river bottoms and especially when we have fog which happens quite often.

Hi Nick,
to my eye you made a masterful use of the panorama format here. I admire and enjoy the fine balanced composition as well as your careful treatment of colors. Your image conveys the impression of this serene autumn scene immediately to me. I just imagine a large print of this photography!


Hi Peter, Many thanks for your kind words. As always so much appreciated. I do think it will make a nice print if I decide to do so. I enjoy these river bottoms very much and all the looks and moods they present.

I knew when I saw “River Bottoms” in the title it would be yours, Nick. Glad you are back on NPN. This has a quiet, still mood and I can feel the cool air. It is ordinary but extraordinary, a scene to return to over and over. Lovely work.
