Congratulations to Skokie resident Kathy Carey who took this stunning Fall photo to win the Skokie Park District's Flickr contest recently.
Carey moved from downtown Chicago to Skokie about a year ago. She said she's had to adjust her photo subjects from city scenes to "more nature-centric ones."
"I've found two places that have quickly become favorites to photograph - the Emily Oaks Nature Center and the Botanic Gardens," Carey said.
The little girl running in the picture is Carey's granddaughter, which she named the photo after - "Nellie."
