Winter 2017 Resident Photo Contest Winners

Resident Photos From Western North Carolina’s Best Community

Winter is still underway in Western North Carolina and Connestee residents have been out and about with cameras at-the-ready. The photo submissions were many and all were wonderful for the Winter Resident Photo Contest. However, there were five images of scenery, portraits, and winter critters that stood out as clear winners.

The winners each receive a gift certificate to the Overlook Clubhouse and are featured here on the Reflections Blog and in the community newsletter. Below are the Connestee Falls Winter Photo Contest winners:
