Photo of the Week: Amy Scarrott

19 Dec


Local resident, and frequent park visitor, Amy Scarrott sent us a beautiful photo that she captured on a recent trip to Centennial Park.

While she regularly jogs through the park for exercise, it is the many hours that she has spent sitting beside the ponds that have helped her capture this stunning shot.
