Just as I arrived home from work one night, the sky shone pink and beautiful. I quickly snapped this shot knowing that the sky changes in seconds. —Tracy Shuping, Candler, Haywood EMC
An evening shot of Shortoff Mountain in the Linville Gorge Wilderness area. The gorge offers a lifetime of climbing opportunities. Look closely to see Cassie Canez making her way up the climb

My granddaughter gives the polar bear a friendly
On an early foggy morning I decided to snap a few pictures of the fog on the water at a pond near my home. To see it in a picture is one thing, but to see a view like this every morning is just a Blessing! —Sylvia McKoy, Erwin, South River EMC
Breathtaking view from the waterfront boardwalk in Duck. —Emily Akers, Surry-Yadkin EMC
I pass by this pasture every day on my way home from work and I always love seeing the cattle grazing on the hilltop. Living on a small goat farm myself makes me really appreciate sweet, country scenes like this. —Allison Morgan, Candler, Haywood EMC
I captured a sweet moment of joy between my wife and baby girl in a canoe on Kerr Lake during a weekend getaway. —Keith Anderson, Wake Forest, Wake Electric
On a beautiful November day in 2014, while walking around Bass Lake in Blowing Rock, I noticed the reflection of the evergreen trees on the blue water of the lake. —Donna Harris, Boone, Blue Ridge Electric
It was a moment of peace and quiet on the Blue Ridge Parkway as I stood 5,000 feet above elevation, encompassed in the cool mountain breeze, watching the sunlight descend over the trees as the clouds stormed by.  —Brittany Edmiston, Brevard, Haywood EMC
This carpenter gothic Episcopal chapel was moved from Forsythe County to Orange County for restoration and use by a new Episcopal congregation. The chapel and train evoke nostalgia every time the train goes by. —Lisa Fischbeck, Durham, Blue Ridge Electric
This large male turtle in Clemmons did not seem to mind a close-up of his face (The lens was about 3 inches away from touching him!). —Frank Ellison, Ocean Isle, Brunswick Electric
