Spring Photo Contest in the Appalachian Mountains
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) April 09, 2016
It's springtime in the breathtaking Appalachian Mountains. Yes, the flowers are in bloom, the whistling of the birds are mesmerizing and the various shades of green across the mountains are a stunning backdrop to inspire. The new spring season is a wonderful opportunity to spend more time outdoors, and bear witness to nature’s glory. It’s no wonder that it's also the focus of a new photography contest, aimed at highlighting the Peach State’s splendor in spring.
Big Canoe Company has teamed up with online magazine Atlanta Trails to find the best spring pictures of Georgia. Real Estate Scorecard encourages photographers to head out this weekend or comb through the photo collection because one lucky winner and up to three companions will win a three day, two night stay at a beautiful mountain home in Big Canoe Community, perched atop Sanderlin Mountain. Real Estate Scorecard has stayed there for weeks at a time and it's like living in a national park. They can't wait to get back. There’s so much to do around the Big Canoe real estate development including the exciting hiking with waterfalls on Big Canoe’s award-winning trail network, fishing in one of their three fresh water lakes and golf.
If folks don’t have their finger directly on the camera lens, it seems nearly impossible to take a bad photo in Big Canoe. It’s surrounded by lush forests, tall hardwood trees, beautiful lakes, waterfalls, swimming pools, bike trails, hiking trails and incredible mountain views. Photographers of all experience levels can tell easily the story of this picturesque area.
So far, nearly a thousand entries have streamed in – with amazing images of flowers, sunsets, hiking with waterfalls and mountains. The pictures can be found on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #GeorgiaSpring. The lucky winner will be announced on April 13th.
