Clover Dell Lake an inspiration to local photographer


Winter was not a deterrent Saturday afternoon for Sara Spaedy, of Sedalia, who was spending time working on a photo assignment at Clover Dell Lake. Spaedy, a member of an online Pentax camera forum, said her assignment was to take a photo each day using only one lens during the “Single in January Challege.”


Spaedy stopped to shoot reeds growing in the lake while exploring Clover Dell Lake for photo opportunities on Saturday. “These challenges are fun because you get to know your lens really well,” Spaedy, who is also a member of the Sedalia Camera Club, said.


After looking over natural subject matter at Clover Dell Lake, Spaedy found some weathered red boards to photograph. “I have a personal Challenge to find things people wouldn’t notice, the mundane,” she said while photographing with a 35-70mm zoom lens. “I always look twice.”


Spaedy, who works as a legal secretary for Fritz & Luper LLC, said the red boards with two protruding nails might possibly be her “photograph of the day.” She added that she loves photographing the buildings in downtown Sedalia and she often walks around before and after work taking photos of its architecture.


When looking for photo opportunities at Clover Dell Lake, Spaedy said she doesn’t arrive with preconceived ideas but walks and lets the subject matter catch her eye. She added that she liked the frozen pond next to the lake and the way the bare tree limbs crisscrossed over the water.
