Subcategories

The Wisconsin Gallery, containing about 240 images counting all color-to-B&W conversions, offers coverage of the central, east central, and southwest areas of the Badger state. The Wisconsin Gallery is the third-largest gallery, after California and Costa Rica.  The thumbnail pages of the Wisconsin Gallery can be roughly divided into three subcategory topical sections: the water section, the forest-and-meadows section, and parkland-and-urban section.  

One thing that is immediately apparent about this Wisconsin subcategory organization is that, unlike the other main Regional Galleries, the Wisconsin Gallery is organized by a topological, or photo subject, logic.  The other regional galleries are organized at the subcategory level by geographic sub-regions.  The reason for this switch in tactics is the simple fact that the primary lure of Wisconsin is its wonderful lakes, rivers and forests.  These fabulous resources can be found in most counties of the state.  A lake might be found way down south or way up north.  The state's original watery highway, the Wisconsin River, has its headwaters well up in the north country and its confluence with the Mississippi is way down by the southwestern corner of the state. After living with the Wisconsin portfolio for a long time, it gradually became apparent that, for landscape photography, Wisconsin is best organized by subject, not by geographic sub-region.
 
There currently is no coverage of the north woods country or the west central or northwest areas of the state. In summer 2011, however, additional material of about 90 images covering the north central woods country will be added to the gallery.  This new material offers coverage of Brown, Langlade, Oconto, and Forest Counties.  The new material goes northwest from Green Bay about 150 miles into the north part of the state (although still well south of the far north counties, which will have to wait a couple of years more).  To put it another way, in the general area of these towns: Mountain, Lakewood, Townsend, Wabeno, Laona, Langlade, Lily, Pickerel and Crandon. 
 
The topical bullet points below serve as an outline of the Wisconsin coverage.  These topics are listed in roughly the same order as the appearance of the images within the thumbnail pages.
