Past Photos of the Week

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

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
Snow covers Stone Mountain State Park in Wilkes and Alleghany counties. Stone Mountain, partly in Traphill and Roaring Gap, offers areas for camping, hiking and picnicking. —Keith Hall, Elkin, A member of Surry-Yadkin EMC
The winter wind sculpts an otherworldly landscape on New Year's Day 2018 on South Point Beach, Ocracoke Island. —Connie Leinbach, Ocracoke, A member of Tideland EMC
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
A pelican hanging out at Holden Beach. —Glenis Ann Hall, Supply, A member of Brunswick Electric
This little Carolina Wren is looking to make sure that I filled up the bird feeder. I love taking pictures of the birds that come to our feeder! —Cindy Barnes, Midland, A member of Union Power
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
Taken from our deck in the North Carolina Mountains (outside of Brevard), this huge Pileated Woodpecker enjoys the large suet cakes. He comes at least once a day and we look forward to his visits! —Lynne Seymour, Rosman, A member of Haywood EMC
Took this photo of the pony in the snow! —Angela Snow, Dobson, A member of Surry-Yadkin EMC
