Award-winning image captures an autumn sunrise.
Stillwater resident Todd Kockelman captured this image on an October morning on his way into work. “My first picture was at 6:55 a.m., and by 7:20 a.m., the colors really started coming alive. The ‘still’ water,
the reflection and the start of a new day all drew me to that spot at that time … As an independent financial advisor, I find that photography gives me peace and calm in a world of constant movement and stress. Although it is just a hobby of mine, I love sharing my photos and knowledge with others. Beauty is everywhere; just find it!”
