The cold temperatures last January turned the creeks into beautiful, ice-lined paths, as evidenced by this creek in Minnesott Beach, Pamlico County. —Darlene Willis, Arapahoe, Tideland EMC
Evening sky at Snow’s Cut in Carolina Beach at blue hour. — Tiberius Greene, Winnabow , a member of Brunswick Electric
After a big snowfall, a friend and I grabbed our camera gear and went driving around the country taking photos. Came across this pond and I loved how the snow was on the trees. —Marilyn Britt, Evergreen, Brunswick Electric
A lone fisherman braves a brisk November morning at Carolina Beach. —Mike Bitzenhofer, Wake Forest, Wake Electric
Oceanana Pier, Atlantic Beach, prior to Hurricane Florence. The pier, which stretched almost 1,000 feet, is a local icon for anglers and beach goers alike. —Amy Nelson, Morehead City, Carteret-Craven Electric
Living in the country, directions to our house always include: “After the leaning barn, we are the road on the right.” —Amie Jo Platt, Zionville, Blue Ridge Energy
Beach biking on the beautiful, quaint Oak Island. Travelling through life comes in many forms… —Kate Karpovich, Southport, a member of Brunswick Electric
Our puppy Cooper sure enjoyed his first snow! —Janice Franklin, Elon, Piedmont Electric
One very cold January day, I hiked in South Mountains State Park. While the big falls are always pretty to look at, the smaller falls below High Shoals Falls Trail are equally beautiful. —Joseph Lux, Mooresville, EnergyUnited
I stood on the bow of the boat during a ride on the Intra-Coastal Waterway and snapped over 60 pictures of the dolphins following us. —Louise Beasley, Havelock, Carteret-Craven Electric
From August to October, my spider friend lived between deck posts and removed insects every night. During the day she would run to the top of the web if I went by and then return to center after I passed. —Lesa Aldridge, Wake Forest, Wake Electric

My son Jody wanted a 1962 Jeep Willy's truck like his great grandfather's. He has bought three trucks now from his cow, goat, egg and honey money. I am proud of the lessons he has learned while building his dream truck. —Jill Mann, Canton, Haywood EMC
These kittens were a surprise to our family—since we do not have a cat! A stray cat decided to have kittens right outside our basement door. This is their favorite place to nap. —Meredith Gallimore, Lexington, EnergyUnited
Fall is my favorite season and hiking Rough Ridge trail is my favorite way to enjoy it! —Ashley Laws, Blowing Rock, Blue Ridge Energy
During this Sunset Beach sunrise on a cool October morning, the Intra-Coastal Waterway reflected the magenta sky, and the sun reflecting on the windows of the house gave off a brilliant golden glow. —Michelle Tinger, Sunset Beach, Brunswick Electric
While attending the Murray's Mill Harvest Folk Festival in Catawba, I shot this 28-foot waterwheel and noticed a little girl looking out the window of the mill. —Paulette Mojica, Morganton, Rutherford EMC
