Past Photos of the Week

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

Silent sailboats gather in downtown Washington at the waterfront one early morning in the fall. I just love the vibrancy of the blue and yellow sails in contrast with the fogginess. —Eugene Kibby, Washington, Tideland EMC
I took this photo of Tater Hill in Watauga County last year. The views from the top are incredible! —Brooke McMeans, Crumpler, Blue Ridge Energy
Carolina country, my home. Where farmers are my neighbors and the church is the center of our social life. The quiet of an autumn evening as the breeze rustles through the dried cornstalks. —Marianna Jackson, Pinetown, Tri-County EMC
A week after Hurricane Matthew devastated our area, it was refreshing to see folks come out to the Columbus County Fair. —Jackie Lewis, Whiteville, Brunswick EMC
My Belted Galloway (Oreo cow) named Chip leads the other cows to some hay on a snowy afternoon on our family farm on Highway 705 in Moore County. —Jennifer Garner, Seagrove, Randolph EMC
It was a crisp fall day when I talked my wife into taking a hike in Pisgah National Forest. We ended up hiking up to Moore Cove and capturing the grandeur of a simple waterfall over a vast rock cavern. —Vincent Castello, Hendersonville, Rutherford EMC
This spring my husband’s parents were thrilled when they adopted their new boxer puppy Roscoe. As Charles M. Schulz, the creator of the Peanuts cartoon strip, once said, “Happiness is a warm puppy.” —Janelle Lambert Tally, Goldston, Randolph EMC
This wonderful old Duplin County farm home of Jim Frank and Carrie Belle Dempsey, built in the late 1930’s, is beautiful in the spring with Carolina Jessamine in bloom. —Susan Dempsey, Emerald Isle, Carteret-Craven EC
During a sunset on Falls Lake, I remarked upon a single, determined tree growing out of the water. The sunset was typical of North Carolina, but it’s rare to see a tree in the midst of it all. —John Stone, Wake Forest, Wake Electric
In Highlands on a warm fall afternoon, I stumbled on this location as I was riding around on the back roads. I labeled it, “Autumn Solitude” as a place one could forget all their troubles and just relax. —Randy Lesley, Banner Elk, Blue Ridge Energy
This is the storm-damaged Avon fishing pier on Hatteras Island. —Cheryl Travis, Hildebran, Blue Ridge Energy
Fall color in the western North Carolina mountains is spectacular. This is the scenery around Graveyard Fields off of the Blue Ridge Parkway. —Joyce Day, Maggie Valley, Haywood EMC
