Lee Schlingmann's photograph of the Doe Run Valley in autumn won first prize in the county's photo contest, but where exactly was she standing when she took it?
Several life-long residents at the West Marlborough Township meeting on March 7 stared at the photo, trying to identify roads, buildings, fences and treelines, but just couldn't figure it out. I turned to social media the next day for help.
It took "Brother" Wilson of West Marlborough's road crew only five minutes to pinpoint it: It was taken from north of Covered Bridge Road, looking south across "Misty Valley." The house on top of the hill is Swaynes' on Ryan Road.
I contact Lee, the photographer, and she confirmed Brother's hunch. Lee said her prize was a gift certificate from Dansko and she is still picking out her shoes. She said she submitted the photo on a whim and then forgot about, so it was a happy surprise to hear she had won.
