Buckhannon Photo Club Cover Photo Contest Winner Announced

Read Time:1 Minute

Glory Magazine hosted the first ever cover photo contest for members of the Buckhannon Photo Club. The theme of the photos was to reflect the beauty of West Virginia and what they felt contributed to the state motto of “Almost Heaven, West Virginia.” Entrants did not disappoint and a variety of gorgeous photos were submitted. The cover photo winner, Gary McCoy, with his beautiful photo of a double rainbow over the fields and mountains in Upshur County called “Rainbow over Edray Barn,” won our hearts and truly reflected the “Almost Heaven” qualities of our state. Watch for his masterpiece on the cover of the upcoming 2018 October-November edition of Glory Magazine and enjoy some of the other mentionable submissions below. Our thanks to the Buckhannon Photo Club and all its members who participated!
