The Fall Colors were exceptionally beautiful this year! As the warm summer said goodbye to Connestee Falls, the North Carolina mountains were greeted with crisp air and wonderful Autumn vistas. As we prepare for another winter, here is a look back at the fall season through the lenses of our resident photographers. The Connestee Falls resident photography contest winners for fall 2015 include several beautiful scenes from around the community. The five winning photos were selected from one of the best batches of entries ever according to POA General Manager Jim Lorah.
“Fall is always one of the most beautiful times to be at Connestee Falls and this year’s photos really put that beauty on display,” said Lorah. “All the photos entered showed great skill, it was truly hard to pick the winners.”
Here are the winning entries from the November 2015 Fall Photo Contest:
