2018 Photo Contest Winner Highlights a Timeless Barn
From her first Brownie camera at age 7 to a photography minor in college, Annette Gould of Rhea County has had a camera in her hand for almost as long as she can remember.
“My favorite thing about taking photographs is being able to capture a moment in time that will never come again,” Gould explains.
The panel judges from Tennessee Farm Bureau Federation and Farm Flavor Media, the publisher of Tennessee Home & Farm, loved the photo’s composition and chose Gould’s photo from hundreds of impressive entries.
Gould’s winning image was a result of taking a different route to Chattanooga through Cumberland County’s Grassy Cove on Hwy. 68. It showcases one of her favorite subjects.
“I love photographing old barns,” Gould says. “There is one around every bend on the roads in Tennessee.” Gould, who lives in Spring City with her husband, finds beauty all around the state and encourages aspiring photographers to explore all that it has to offer. Fall is her favorite season for taking photos, though the winning entry was shot well before the leaves changed.
