As the cold descends on beautiful Connestee Falls, and 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 2014 include several beautiful scenes from around the community. The five winning photos were selected from over 50 entries.
“Fall is always a fantastic time of the year at Connestee Falls and there were so many great photos submitted by our residents,” said Jim Lorah, POA General Manager. “The winning photos captured many amazing sights demonstrating there is so much beauty here in addition to the turning of the leafs.” According to Lorah, several additional honorable mention photos from this contest are also being added to the Connestee Photo Album on the community’s Reflections Blog. A video submitted by Timothy Barrett “40th Annual Fall Leaf Parade” also received an honorable mention and is being added to the Connestee YouTube Channel.
The Property Owners Association regularly runs resident photo contests and the winning photos are published here on the blog. Each winner also receives a gift certificate to the Overlook Clubhouse.
All the photos of the community on the Connestee Falls website were taken by residents. Find more spectacular photos on the slideshow at the top of the main website. Use the Click here link on any of those photos to learn more about the photographer and the stories behind their photos.
