Photography Challenge Day 12: Sunset
July 3, 2010. Sunset over Lake Mendota, Madison, WI.
Our first summer together, Jeff and I went to watch the Madison fireworks. They are (almost) always held the Saturday before the 4th. They have this really big "Rhythm & Booms" event (which, on the radio, sounds like "rhythm & boobs" btw), but we chose to just go to a different location and watch, and not put up with the huge crowds of people.
I had found this little bitty city park on the lake just behind a church my first summer here when Mom & I were looking for a place to watch the show. You just back your car into a spot in the church parking lot and you can easily be out of there and on the road before the big groups of people have jammed up the roads. It's quite nice.
Until this year, that is. They've changed the location, and they're over a different area, so no more watching from this pretty little spot. Too bad, too, because it sure was nice...
