On these hot summer days, there's nothing better than taking a dip in the water to cool off.

News 8 photographer John Schmidt takes us to the Lake Wazee, just outside of Black River Falls in Jackson County in these week's Eye Piece.

"I think when you get out on the water, its like you're in a different world. As soon as you push off from shore, its like you're in your own little place,” said Jeff Polzin, a kayaking instructor.

Every Friday on News 8 at 6, we’ll feature a photo essay from our talented photographers.
