Picture the Park: Stunning Sunset

Occasionally, it takes just a second to notice the simple things in life.

Wendy Berezovsky was outside with her three children when she realized she could not pass up a beautiful image like the one they were seeing.

“I love the picture because it shows the true beauty of a sunset,” says Berezovsky, who has lived in St. Louis Park all her life. “The brightness of the sun is beautiful.”

Berezovsky’s photo received an honorable mention in the 2015 Picture the Park photo contest, in the category of Wildlife and Nature. She captured the photo with her Nikon Coolpix.

“I love taking pictures,” Berezovsky says. “Besides taking pictures of my kids, nature is what I love to capture.”

Berezovsky and her family are happy living in St. Louis Park and she is quick to name a few favorite spots.

“Our favorite places in St. Louis Park are the Shops at West End, especially Glamour Nails,” she says. “We love the Shops at Knollwood too, especially Nordstrom Rack. But what I like most about my community is the close-knit feel.”
