Connestee Falls Winter Photo Contest Winners Wow
The resident photo entries for the Winter 2019 contest included many wonderful images from the community. There were over 50 photos submitted that featured landscapes, nature, animals and people from around the community. As with all the contest periods, selecting winners was not easy. The five winning resident photos below stood out though as the best-of-the-best. These photos and more will be featured on the Connestee Falls Facebook and Instagram pages in the ongoing resident photo series there.
Each winning resident photographer receives a gift certificate to the newly renovated Overlook Clubhouse. Congrats to the winners and thanks to all our amazing resident photographers!
