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

On this day at Grandfather Mountain, there was heavy fog so I was able to capture this unique photo of the “Mile High Swinging Bridge.” —Noah Coleman, Burlington, a member of Blue Ridge Energy
This photo was taken at Monroe Park in Charlotte. —Nhat Vu, Mint Hill, a member of Union Power Cooperative
Upon a recent trip to Concord this past spring, I took this picture. It captures the delicate innocence of spring with the budding dogwood flower and southern traditions via the pillars of the church in the background.—Jessica Petot, Palm Harbor, FL
Henna, my foster dog, enjoys the spring weather. Henna is available for adoption through Happy Tails Rescue, Inc. —Daniell Setzer, Hildebran
My husband and our sweet dog, Sophie, enjoying a walk after one of our beautiful snowfalls in West Jefferson. —Anita Shelley, West Jefferson
This barn is about a half mile from my home. One morning while walking my dog, I saw it and the light was perfect! I ran and grabbed my camera. There is never a shortage of beauty in Western North Carolina! —Jacki Bruder, Murphy
Our granddaughter, Hannah (15), likes to take her camera when she checks cows with her Pop Pop. She was able to catch this one at just the right time! —Pam Rhyne, Charlotte, Union Power Cooperative
Looking south across John Willis Creek on Harkers Island, you’ll see Shackleford Banks to the left and to the right is Beaufort. Winter sunsets from our coast are brilliant! —Rosita Griffin, Harkers Island, a member of Carteret-Craven Electric Cooperative
On the waterfront in downtown Wilmington, I found this boat with an old-timey American flag and composed one of my favorite images to date. —Tyler Sales, Franklinton, a member of Wake Electric
I woke up to a dense fog covering Wake Forest which inspired me to take photos at nearby Joyner Park. The pecan grove was especially beautiful. My very last shot revealed a young lady appearing out of nowhere. —Rick Allen, Wake Forest
There's a moment between light and dark that can be so breathtaking it's hard to believe it happened. When I look back at this sunset on the Yaupon Pier, Oak Island, I am in awe. —Patricia Totero, Oak Island, a member of Brunswick Electric
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
