A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

My photo won....

Just for the heck of it I decided to enter a small town photo contest this spring.
I found the contest on the Park Rapids web page. 
Park Rapids is our other town, about 4 1/2 hours from Rochester, 
it's where we spend a lot of time in the summer at our cabin up north.
To my surprise, I was chosen as the winner for one of the three categories....."Lake Scenes" 
We three winners had our photo taken and publish on the Park Rapids website.

 "Reflections of a morning fog"
 I snapped this shot one day early last spring when the fog was still on the lake, 
the cloud pattern was so beautiful.

 Max Bailey Photography of Park Rapids sponsors the contest and awards a professionally finished, 11X14-inch mounted picture of the winning photograph in each of three categories
Here's me showing off my prize. 

Before the contest winners had been announced, 
I had it developed on a 16 X 20 canvas which hangs in the "green bedroom" at the cabin.

My first Photo contest entry... I kind of like this.
There may be more entries in the future for this girl.
