Take Our Spring Photo Challenge

Spring Photo Challenge Blog Header

They say a picture is worth a thousand words…well, Spring is in the air, and how better to share with one another than through pictures from each of our own neck of the woods?

You may have participated in our photo challenges in the past, but if not, it’s easy, and we hope you will join in and share through the lens of your camera (or smartphone in most cases)!  (Click here for a photo recap of our last photo challenge.)

Our 2017 Spring Photo Challenge begins Saturday, April 1st.

Here’s how it works:

Post one photo daily, using the daily prompts noted below, on Instagram or Facebook.  Don’t forget to use the hashtag #CoveSpringPhotoChallenge when you post your photo so we can all see what each other are sharing.

Not a picture taking pro?  Don’t worry, neither are we. All of our photos will be taken with an iPhone.  No fancy photography skills required!

Need some ideas of what to share? Post a picture of the blooming flowers, your favorite spring activity, a page or quote from an inspirational book, or a photo of the place where you find renewal.

Most importantly, have fun!  Take time to enjoy the lively buzz of spring.

FYI: Anyone taking part in the photo challenge may have their photos shared by The Cove and other participants. 

The bright, blooming foliage of spring make this time of year one of the most incredible seasons to visit our area.  Make sure to visit the Chatlos Memorial Chapel, Visitors Center, and Ruth’s Prayer Garden.  Click here for directions and operating hours. Tours are free.

Share Your Photos and Enjoy Ours — Daily Snapshot Challenge

We have so many  reasons to celebrate the majesty of our Creator throughout the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove property in Asheville, NC, that we have put together a way to share more with you!

Similar to many “photo a day” lists, we challenge you to share your best daily snapshots with us – things that inspire you, moments that capture God’s glory, even your own hidden gems.

Here’s how it works:

  • ·         Check out the list for a daily photo prompt.
  • ·         Take your own photo and upload it using your favorite social media with the hashtag #DailySnapshot (so others can find your photos).
  • ·         Check out others’ photos and like, share or comment to be an encouragement to them.

And don’t forget to check out our Daily Snapshots on Instagram and Pinterest to see some hidden gems from The Cove.

Happy picture taking!
