Lake Geneva Lake water

My wife and I spent last Saturday morning circling Geneva Lake in southern Wisconsin, visiting the small towns on its shores and taking pictures along the way. One of the towns is named Lake Geneva and for the longest time I thought when someone referred to the lake as Geneva Lake, they were mistaken. I thought the name of the town was also the name of the lake.

I found the patterns of refracted sunlight on submerged rocks near the shore fascinating, so I shot a few frames. Some selective saturation and vignetting was used to arrive at the final image.

Wow! I love this shot.. I think someone already commented this, but I really do prefer these shots compared to those mini thingies..sometimes they didn't look 'mini' :)
