Photo of the Week - flinging water
Amy Amundson of Alexandria took this photo of her daughter, Alison Amundson and friends Taylor Partington and Emma Schmidt as they were beating the heat with a swim in Lake Burgen during the last days of summer vacation.
"They did something spectacular with their hair in the water and I captured it on film at just the right moment," Amundson said.
