Past Photos of the Week

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

Our family has visited Nags Head for 28 years. Seeing the ghost crabs brings back fond memories of our family’s children chasing them. I waited 20 minutes for this little guy to pop out of his hole. —Luanne Serik, Eastover, A member of South River EMC
Our nightly ritual: Looking out over the Albemarle Sound from our home in Kitty Hawk as the sun sets. —Victoria Byers, Kitty Hawk, Blue Ridge Energy
The spiral stairs leading to the light of the Bodie Island Lighthouse creates a beautiful geometric pattern when photographed looking up. —Joel Miller, Hickory, Blue Ridge Energy
Many years ago, my grandfather told me,
I call this “River Watch.” Taken on the Little Shallotte River in March. —Gary Burgun, Shallotte, A member of Brunswick Electric
My husband and I run a farm called Mop Top Acres in Seagrove. I love it when calves are born—the different colors are fun. Zoey was born to our sweet cow Hope and she is kind and sweet and wants treats! —Kimberly Mayo, Seagrove, A member of Randolph EMC
We have lots of squirrels but have never seen a white one. We live in Union County and have been members of Union Power Cooperative for 30 years. —Doug Watson, Indian Trail, A member of Union Power Cooperative
Just how small are we really in the universe. —Glenn Poplin, Maxton, Lumbee River EMC
Looked out the window and saw this owl about 20 feet from the house. —Rick Swartenberg, Marshville, Pee Dee Electric
Move over birds, froggy’s in the house! This little grey tree frog has taken over one of our bird houses. It crawls out at night to enjoy the all-you-can-eat special on mosquitoes! —Marla Watson, Indian Trail, A member of Union Power Cooperative
I took this photo at a controlled burn in Orange County this past spring. The smoke and flames as this firefighter walked away from the building was touching. —Hannah Apple, Hillsborough, A member of Piedmont Electric
Part of a bigger scene I was fortunate enough to witness. This bald eagle is keeping a watchful eye over the nesting female. Taken along the banks of the Yadkin River. —Kevin Henderson, Concord, A member of Union Power
This red-headed woodpecker caught an insect and flew up to its nest hole in a tall snag to feed its young. Its mate flew out the hole and then he entered. Photo taken in Southport. —Ann Orsillo, Southport, Brunswick Electric
This was taken at my home in Beulaville on an early May morning. —Danielle Lewis, Beulaville , Tri-County EMC
Sitting on the bank of a ditch, watching the sun set. —Rene Pate, Goldsboro, Tri-County EMC
A young lady was walking peacefully along the point at Bogue Inlet. She broke into a beautiful impromptu dance, causing the sea gulls to take flight. —Phillip Stith, Winston Salem, A member of Carteret-Craven Electric
Not all animals at the NC Zoological Park are in enclosures. This Carolina chickadee posed for me on a branch while we stopped for lunch. —Chris Wrede, Rocky Point, A member of Four County EMC
Six-year-old Angel loves her baby goat Tinkerbell. We raise Angora and Nigora goats and the tiny Nigoras are Angel's favorites! —Brandy Smith, Vale, A member of Rutherford EMC
