Past Photos of the Week

Returning home on Christmas Eve, we decided to stop by Lake Waccamaw. I took this picture of my grandfather walking ahead of me. The peacefulness allowed us to slow down and remember the true meaning of Christmas. —Paige Trotter, Thomasville, EnergyUnited
Taken on the Town of Duck’s boardwalk on the Currituck Sound with my cell phone: A lone cypress at dusk. —Kathleen Brown, Wake Forest, Wake Electric
On a beautiful November day in 2014, while walking around Bass Lake in Blowing Rock, I noticed the reflection of the evergreen trees on the blue water of the lake. —Donna Harris, Boone, Blue Ridge Electric
It was a moment of peace and quiet on the Blue Ridge Parkway as I stood 5,000 feet above elevation, encompassed in the cool mountain breeze, watching the sunlight descend over the trees as the clouds stormed by.  —Brittany Edmiston, Brevard, Haywood EMC
The sad devastation from the wildfire damage around Shortoff Mountain in Burke County adds a sense of haunting beauty to this rewarding hike. This heartbroken tree shows the tragic beauty found within the ruthlessness of nature. —Annie South, Hudson
Just as I arrived home from work one night, the sky shone pink and beautiful. I quickly snapped this shot knowing that the sky changes in seconds. —Tracy Shuping, Candler, Haywood EMC
An evening shot of Shortoff Mountain in the Linville Gorge Wilderness area. The gorge offers a lifetime of climbing opportunities. Look closely to see Cassie Canez making her way up the climb
I treasure my visits to the Bay River at Vandemere in Pamlico County, a quiet little corner of North Carolina. You’ll find very little activity outside of the occasional fishing boat. —Donna Banks, Roseboro, South River EMC
On a chilly rainy November day at Lake Tillery, I took advantage of a small break in the rain and walked down to the dock. The reflection of the sky was so clear in the water that it almost didn't look real! —Felicia Hall, Asheboro
On an early foggy morning I decided to snap a few pictures of the fog on the water at a pond near my home. To see it in a picture is one thing, but to see a view like this every morning is just a Blessing! —Sylvia McKoy, Erwin, South River EMC
Breathtaking view from the waterfront boardwalk in Duck. —Emily Akers, Surry-Yadkin EMC
I pass by this pasture every day on my way home from work and I always love seeing the cattle grazing on the hilltop. Living on a small goat farm myself makes me really appreciate sweet, country scenes like this. —Allison Morgan, Candler, Haywood EMC
