Past Photos of the Week

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

The bygone Frisco Pier was captured at sunrise on a cool March morning along the vast Outer Banks beaches. Taking these photos preserves history and rejuvenates the memories her visitors. —Kenneth Newman, Prince George, VA, Cape Hatteras Electric
I live near Falls Lake and make it a point to visit frequently, looking for the rare trifecta of the lake reflections, the colors of the sky and the cloud patterns. On this winter morning, I felt I hit the jackpot! —John Stone, Wake Forest, Wake Electric
Captured on a windy autumn night atop the Great Smoky Mountain range, this photo showcases Clingmans Dome under a starry night sky. This iconic landmark straddles the edge of North Carolina with Tennessee. —Bradley Harrison, Mooresville
An Alexander County winter snow scene complete with old barn from the 50's in Taylorsville. This is the glorious, peaceful view we have from our front door every time it snows—Appalachian winter heaven! —Courtney Phillips, Taylorsville, EnergyUnited
I’m not much on being cold, but when we had one of those rare big snows in the Triad, I had to run outside to take some pictures. —Elisabeth Perkins, Burlington, Piedmont Electric
Edgecombe County —Sydney Dixon, Tarboro
This is my son Jody’s 1962 Jeep Willy's truck just like his great grandfather's. He bought it with his farming money when he was 13. He is now 16 and drives it to school and on our farm daily. —Jill Mann, Canton, Haywood EMC
I enjoy adventures with my children and we love all of the NC state parks. Here we are at the beginning of a short hike in Lumber River State Park. —Herman Ospina, Lumberton, Lumbee River EMC
Two surfers leaving Wrightsville Beach after a day of surfing in late fall. —Janet Beal, Leland, Brunswick Electric
This is my granddaughter Karley Davidson's French bulldog, Bella Mia enjoying her first trip to Carolina Beach. —Diana Key, Robbins, Randolph EMC
Driving around on these country roads near Brevard, listening to music is one of my favorite things to do, and being able to capture a photo along the way means that I can hold these moments forever. —Mallory Michael, Cleveland
I was up early one day so I decided to clean one of my rental cabins that has an amazing view. I’ve never been there for the sunrise and WOW was I surprised! —Tess Diffenderffer, Robbinsville
