Our Photo Contest Winner

Please meet the winner of our photo contest Theresa Fawver.  We asked her a few questions about taking nature photos and her love for all things weather.

> What made you interested in WXedge?

WXedge has so much information on weather, locations,wildlife and stories from around the state. It is easy to log in and read stories and see photos of whats going on in surrounding towns. It is like a book at your fingertips that changes constantly!

> How long have you been taking photos?

I have been taking photos since 2008 when my family bought me a cheap camera as a hobby. After the first snap I was addicted.

> Do you have a favorite nature spot in Connecticut?

I couldn’t name just one spot as I find beauty in all of Connecticut’s nature spots. We have beaches, marshes, forests, parks, waterfalls and even sometimes someone’s own yard can hold wonders such as trees, flowers, birds and animals. I guess it’s just the way one looks at things and people need to slow down and enjoy it sometimes.

> What is your greatest weather memory/story?

I believe this Blizzard of 2013 would have to take the top story. Maybe it was being snowed in for 4 days that stands out. With no visible streets to be seen; it reminded me of old photos when there were no roads, like open country with houses dropped into it. I will always remember the camaraderie that came out of this storm with people helping people. It certainly did produce alot of snow but also more kindness between neighbors.
