Magical Springtime for Wynken, Blynken and Nod by Bernadette Chiaramonte 2019 Series Limited Edition Pop's Culture Shoppe Puzzle, 12"x18" 336 pieces. Winner of our annual puzzle photo contest!
Poet Eugene Field believed that childhood should be enjoyed day dreaming, pretending and using one’s imagination. He would certainly be pleased to know that his fanciful "Wynken, Blynken and Nod" poem has been immortalized in this magical place on the beautiful Wellsboro Green. Even the statue of Mary Wells in the background appears to be daydreaming on this lovely day!
Bernadette Chiaramonte is a nine-time winner of the Citizens & Northern Bank calendar contest and a retired Registered Nurse from Soldiers + Sailors Memorial Hospital’s Emergency Department. As a two-time "PA Wilds" contest winner, Chiaramonte’s photographs were published in Pennsylvania’s tourism and travel brochures. She also won twice for The Keystone Press Award for Feature Photo in Mountain Home Magazine.
Bernadette shares, "Photography transcends time. It takes you to places you have never been. It makes you stop and be in that one moment. When I am photographing a landscape, wildlife or the stars in the sky my worries in life just fade away. It is a very real experience for me. I just love the photographic medium for expressing what I love about life on Earth. A planet we take too much for granted."
