Village of Ephraim, Door County Wisconsin

Village of Ephraim in Door County Wisconsin.

While in Door County Wisconsin we passed by this village called Ephraim one day while driving around and we decided to check the place out. We went to Door County when vacation season was just starting so the place wasn't crowded yet.

By the lake in Ephraim, Door County Wi.

The Ephraim public library.
The place had plenty of parking so we just parked on the side of the road and just walked around and took some shots. As usual, on situations like this The 17-40mm f/4L is always my choice, mounted on a full frame body, this combination shines for landscape shots. Set it on aperture priority and all you have to do is walk and shoot.

The famous Wilsons Sundaes.
We went by the famous Wilsons Sundaes near the lake to grab something to eat. They serve burgers, hotdogs, shakes, etc. A very nice place to just eat and hang out after walking through Ephraim Village. They were actually featured on a National Geographic show called brain games and we were so happy that we had a chance to visit the place.

When in Ephraim, you will have a ton of time photographing the lake. From what I've heard there are beautiful sunsets you can photograph by the lake...too bad I didn't have the chance to do that. The atmosphere there is so relaxing, basically just take some shots, sit down and eat. No feeling of being rushed.

Another very good place to visit when you go to Door County Wi. Ephraim Village is a place full of nice places to photograph, and very good history and of course, the food.
