A closed beach in Madison, Wisconsin. Spring and summer bring much needed sun to the shores of Lake Mendota, an ideal place to swim and lounge. However, until then the lake is capped by a solid foot and a half of ice, which means lifeguards would have very little to do during their hours on duty.

Camera: Nikon D90
Taken: January, 2011
