AAA Southern Traveler Features Local Photographer
Editors at the AAA Southern Traveler admired scores of entries in this year’s Best of the South Photo Contest, eventually picking the top four images based on their scores for composition, technical qualities, and how they captured the essence of the South. Yet there were so many impressive photos that we wanted to share some of the other remarkable entries that readers snapped across the region with their cameras. While they may not have won the contest, these photos certainly are outstanding by any measure.
Jay Vrecenak of Holiday Island, Ark., took this photograph of Beaver Bridge in Beaver, Ark., located at the westernmost tip of Table Rock Lake where the White River meets the lake. One of the few remaining suspension bridges left in the state, the picturesque structure is sometimes called the Little Golden Gate.
