A picture taken by Heidi Tubbs of Hixton was recently selected as a finalist for the Reader Photo Contest in the Our Wisconsin magazine.

Her picture was taken at the Warrens Cranberry Festival and is of Ben Bikin’, which is a familiar sight in Sparta, the “Bicycling Capital of America.”

This is actually her third nomination in a row from the magazine.

“It is amazing to me how many people get the magazine and saw my work,” Tubbs said explaining that she has gotten a lot of compliments.

Tubbs said she takes photos for fun, entering them into contests at the Jackson County Fair and Warrens Cranberry Festival, starting seven years ago when her daughter was two-years-old.
