"Up North"

The photographs in this series were taken primarily in the Hayward Lakes area in Wisconsin although they could easily represent many of the beautiful lakes and forests in northern Minnesota or Wisconsin.   In these parts of the country, "up north" is typically a lake that is away from the city - north, south, east, or west.   It stands for peace, relaxation, getting away from it all, and spending time with family.    "We’re going to the cabin" is a popular saying on weekends as the highways fill up with cars headed to a place where work can be forgotten and cares erased.

"Seasons" serves to represent, in some small way, the joys that we experience in the northern states when we escape our daily routine and experience nature at its finest.  The birds, animals, water, trees, and small town celebrations reinvigorate us; Monday always comes too soon.

If you haven’t had a chance to head up north, I hope you feel some sense of the fun and relaxation that comes to us from this area.   If you are lucky enough to be a frequent or even infrequent visitor to the north country, enjoy the photographs, remember the fun you had there, and dream about the day you will go back again.
