Today's image is titled a beautiful day and was photographed by Ryan Wisniewski.
Though the ice on Lake Wingra is thinning with the recent warm spell, it's always worth taking another look at last weekend's breakout of iceboating. These sails on skates covered the city's smallest lake thanks to the energies of The Four Lakes Ice Yacht Club. More details about the first winter weekend on the ice -- including a video and more background -- is available here.
