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,
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
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
