Past Photos of the Week

Every week we highlight another great submission from our annual photo contest

Dogs love trucks! For the past 20 years, we load the dogs up when we go to drop off recyclables in northern Duplin County. Left to right are Pretty, Ronie, Katie, Jack, Honey, Ryan, and Bo. Unseen up front is JT.—Gene Lilley, Mount Olive, Tri-County EMC
I went to the sunflower fields at Odom Farms in Goldsboro in August. It was a gorgeous day with beautiful sunflowers just waiting to get their pictures taken! —Denise Ruffin, Goldsboro, Carteret-Craven Electric Cooperative
Enjoying a summer day. Noticed one of the many different dragonflies we have in Southeastern NC. The dragon seemed to be enjoying my rose. —James Hewett, Ash, Brunswick Electric
After a typical summer storm, the sun triumphantly broke through the clouds, and a father and daughter enjoyed the moment. It seemed so innocent, reminding me of the value of connecting to others, and the sense of childlike wonder. —Cody Owen, Charlotte
My cousin and I went to the Caldwell County Agricultural Fair. We enjoyed most rides but not this. We decided that neither of us had the guts to even give it a try. —Trinity Oaks, Banner Elk
My daughter, Amy Scoggin Jay took this photo of our granddaughter, Evelyn, who learned to love NC corn on the cob in her Noni’s kitchen at Holden Beach. Her family is currently serving overseas in Germany. —Deborah Scoggin, Lexington, Brunswick Electric
Captured this precious jewel (Fontana Lake) while standing on a bridge on NC Highway 28. I absolutely love the reflections on the lake, boats, fluffy clouds and the mountain view. This is God’s country. —Camilla Johnson, Lowell
We live on over 50 acres in Stokes County. We are fortunate to have an abundance of wildlife on the property, such as this deer and fawn I spied from the kitchen window. —Patty Young, Westfield, a member of Surry-Yadkin Electric
While at Black Mountain Campground in Burnsville, this stack of rocks was the perfect addition to the gentle cascade of water and mossy log. I was born in the mountains and they will always be in my blood. —Stephanie Sheffield, Gastonia, Rutherford EMC
Sunset at Ocean Isle Beach. —Lauren Rhoads, Ocean Isle Beach
It was the fourth of July, and I realized that even though I had lived in the mountains my entire life, I had never seen a sunset from Waterrock Knob on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I was blown away. —Sally Dixon, Waynesville
A friend of mine named Jen Overstreet took this photo of her dog “Maximum Prime” and sent it to me to have a portrait painted because I am a commissioned artist. —Sue Huson, Mebane, a member of Piedmont Electric
