Fighting the Heat, Humidity and Bugs

Since heading west, away from the “coast” of Lake Michigan, the temperatures have soared, as has the humidity, the bugs and the strength of the thunderstorms. Photographing in this heat, especially under the dark cloth of my 4×5 view camera has been challenging. Driving through Prairie du Sac late in the afternoon, I read the bank time/temp sign to confirm what I had suspected, the temperature was at 99 degrees.Prairie du Sac is a small town roughly midway between Madison and Wisconsin Dells. I had heard of Wisconsin Dells, but never understood what it was – a general area, a natural formation or mountains? Turns out, it is the name of a town, which is now a massive amusement park/tourist destination built on the “excuse” of the natural beauty of the Wisconsin River curving its way through a gorge in the town.
