We regularly feature photo submissions from our Images of Edina photo contest in the pages of Edina Magazine and online. This month, we asked Vicki Hurwitz to tell us about her 2020 award-winning photograph titled Artful Arches.
Where was the photo taken?
“Centennial Lakes.” According to photocrowd.com, reflections can bring a sense of tranquility and atmosphere, and create a composition that is pleasing to the eye.
What inspired the shot?
“Seeing arches layered one behind the other.”
What’s your favorite thing about this image?
“It took me a minute to figure out what the design was on the arch ceiling.” Many reflection photographers seek out still water for the perfect shot since the slightest breeze can cause ripples in the water. Hurwitz managed to capture what appears to be still water, yet the reflection tells otherwise. It also looks pretty.
What type of camera do you use?
“Panasonic ZS 200.”
What prompted you to submit your photo to Images of Edina?
“My daughter-in-law suggested I enter the contest.” We’re so glad she did so we can share this cool image with our readers. Tag us on Instagram @edinamag, #edinamag to share your locally inspired shots online.
