Past Photos of the Week

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

My pond frog held on to the plastic turtle, though the wind blew strong and he kept floating under the waterfall. The expression on his face seems to say, “It’s no big deal, I'm just taking my shower.”—Barbara Hall
The serenity of such artwork demands a moment of silent respect as you stand in awe, admiring what was only moments ago a dark eastern sky.—Ashley Kington, Morehead City
After my parents and I left IHOP at Signal Hill Mall, I walked outside to see this awe-inspiring sight. —Kevin Chavez, Statesville, EnergyUnited
For this photo of Crabtree Falls off of the Blue Ridge Parkway, I had to get as close to the falls as I could without being completely soaked. Getting the shot was exhilarating. What an experience! —Lucas Price, Hudson, Blue Ridge Electric
While in St. Pauls I saw this Monarch on Mexican Heather and felt lucky to get this shot. —Mona Brown, Fayetteville
On one of those 100-degree, high-humidity southern days, our family went over to a friend’s dock off of Moss Lake. My son jumped out into the water, toward his dad. It was a great way to beat the heat. —Jamie Carroll, Cherryville,  Rutherford EMC
During the summer, after a rain, you can almost be guaranteed to spot a turtle. While enjoying some sunshine one morning on the front porch, I spotted this little guy peeking up through the grass. —Candice Monte, Mount Airy, Surry-Yadkin EMC
Driving the Blue Ridge Parkway in Alleghany County one foggy morning, we rounded a curve and ran into this uplifting sight. —Greg Baldwin, Lansing, Blue Ridge Electric

Our son Luke Poole shows off the fish he caught on our yearly fall family fishing trip to Emerald Isle. Luke was a super proud and excited two-and-a-half-year old.—Ashley Poole, Roxboro, Piedmont EMC
I had just finished washing my car and I noticed 2 dragonflies were flying around it, so I went in and grabbed my camera. I was lucky enough to have the dragonfly land on the end of a plant. —Ben Neunsinger, Wake Forest, Wake Electric
