Famed 19th Century Danish-American landscape architect Jens Jensen, who designed many of Chicago's beautiful parks, eventually settled in Wisconsin's Door County peninsula and founded "The Clearing." According to the Wisconsin Native blog, he had a hand in designing a stretch of Highway 42 near the very tip of Door County, between Gills Rock and the Northport terminal for the Washington Island Ferry. This spot, often simply referred to as "Door County's winding road," is a hotspot for photography enthusiasts year round, as this unique piece of art snakes its way through Door County's picturesque landscape. This has become one of my favorite places to shoot, though it's not uncommon during peak times of year to have to share this spot with other photographers. A weekday afternoon in winter is a great time to catch this spot in solitude and enjoy its splendor for yourself.
