Lucky Weather Feature Photo

With Waldameer Park & Water World and Lake Erie as a backdrop, the Konkol family of Greene Township fights 20-mph winds while taking a quick walk around the outside deck of the observation tower at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center in Millcreek Township on Feb. 17. From foreground to background are: twins Meghan and Lauren Konkol, both 7, and their mother Andrea Konkol. The girls said the 40-degree temperature was too cold for more than one trip around. "Just a day off from school, and something to do," said Andrea Konkol of the reason for the outing. "I said, 'You can do whatever you want,' and this is what they wanted to do."

Real happy with this image. I was under the gun to come up with a quick feature photo. I knew that many kids were out of school for the long Presidents' Day holiday. I gambled on the observation tower at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center, wasting a lot of time waiting for a family to show. The first family was all grins and mugging for the camera. I shot them, but knew it wasn't working. I was running out of time and ready to leave. Then the twins showed up. Couldn't have gotten luckier...
