Last week this northwest Wisconsin luxury lake home on Upper Eau Claire Lake was ready for its summer refresh.   I started with drone photos, and then captured fresh exteriors and waterfront shots with my “regular” camera.  When I got back to the office and started downloading these photos…  I’ll have to admit, I kind of liked what I saw.

It was a calm, sunny morning with barely a ripple out there–perfect conditions for verifying that the Eau Claire chain of lakes lives up to its name.  (Eau Claire, as you’ve probably guessed, is French for “Water Clear.”  And it is.)  To see a few photos showing exactly how clear that water is in Upper Eau Claire Lake, just scroll on down.
