I met Elyse by the lake for an impromptu photo session. A few days earlier, I had scouted a few nearby locations, but they had since been closed to the public, so now what? It was cloudy and warm, the last warm day of the year. We walked along shoreline of Lake Mendota and we made a few nice portraits. We found a short pier, and this fun action shot resulted there. No one fell in the water, and that was a good sign.
