Stony Creek Fall Photo Wins Facebook Cover Photo Contest
A local woman's stunning picture of fall colors at Stony Creek will replace Shelby-Utica Patch's Facebook cover photo.
Deanna Kahler of Shelby Township upoaded the winning photo for the Shelby-Utica Facebook cover contest.
Kahler's fall Stony Creek photo captured the essence of the beautiful fall colors in Shelby Township.
Nearly 25 photos depicting Shelby Township's natural beauty were uploaded to the contest in the past few weeks.
Kahler's photo will replace the Shelby-Utica Patch's Facebook cover page, but before we post it, let's take a second to get to know our local photographer.
Patch: Where exactly was that photo taken?
Kahler: The photo was taken from Winter Cove, facing the island. Behind the
island is the boat rental portion of the park.
Patch: How did that shot catch your eye?
Kahler: My husband and I were just walking around taking in the beautiful
scenery on a gorgeous fall day. The view of the tall grass, water, trees
and reflections caught our attention, so we stopped for a picture.
Patch: What did you take the photo on? What kind of camera?
Kahler: I used a Canon PowerShot SD550 Digital Elph camera. It's a small, simple camera that fits easily into a pocket. I like that we can take it
anywhere and snap a picture at a moment's notice.
Patch: What's your favorite photography subject?
Kahler: My favorite photography subject is definitely nature. I love capturing
shots of various scenery -- especially trees, lakes, beaches and
sunsets. One of my favorite areas of the state to photograph is Traverse
City. I've always been drawn to water and hope to purchase a summer
cottage on the lake one day.
Patch: Have you ever taken photography classes?
Kahler: No, I've never taken a photography class, but I have thought it might be fun to try one sometime!
