“Sunrise at the Scotland County Lake in Laurinburg.”—Glenn Poplin, Maxton, Lumbee River EMC
“I live on 5 acres in Iredell County, tucked down an ol’ dirt road. Sometimes I get to witness this—the sun setting over a 200-year-old oak tree while the cows graze. It's why I live in NC.” —Melanie Salzman, Mooresville, EnergyUnited
Our pet cow Belle was craving attention so my grandson Asher gave her a sweet hug. I think it made his day as much as it made ours! She is a gentle giant. —Cindy Clayton, Richfield, Union Power Cooperative

“My fur baby Whiskers loves to peer out of the window in my bathroom. I noticed the lighting was hitting him just right and ran to grab my camera. This is one of my favorite pictures of him.”—Danielle Hammond, Hays, Surry-Yadkin EMC
“Took a ride out to the beautiful Cataloochee Valley and was lucky to get to view some elk. Caught this one hiding in the meadow grasses.” —Kate Kedzierski, Morganton, Rutherford EMC

“The Milky Way spilled across the sky at Doughton Park off of the Blue Ridge Parkway in  Alleghany County. It was a perfect moonless night so the stars could shine!”—Leslie Restivo, Vilas, Blue Ridge Mountain EMC #photooftheweek
