Past Photos of the Week

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

After visiting the Fort Fisher Aquarium, I instantly fell in love with the movement of the trees there. I enjoy watching the sunlight creeping through the tree canopies and how it almost paints a picture on the ground. —Bethany Milford, Waxhaw
Queen Ann’s Lace—springtime brings it up and down the road at our home in North Iredell. When I was younger, my sister and I would pretend it was a parasol. It adds just the right touch to a spring arrangement. —Ellen Hager, Olin, EnergyUnited
There are many similar buildings, but few “restored.”  Old world charm with modern amenities can be had under the care of the passionate few. —Joshua Sun, Waxhaw, Union Power
Nothing says Carolina Country like a Mimosa tree in the summer. I delight in the simple things, like bumble bees, Mimosa trees and nature at work. Nothing is finer than to be in Carolina! —Lynn McDonald, Shallotte, Brunswick EMC
About a year and a half ago we bought 2 goats, Cookie and Ginger (pictured). From their intriguing behavior and curiosity, to their strange noises, goats are amazing creatures. —John Walters, Monroe, Union Power
A peaceful moment at Lake Sequoyah in Highlands, just before getting out on my paddle board. It’s an amazing lake, located in one of the many awesome towns in Western North Carolina. —Chad Moon, Highlands, Haywood EMC
During the early morning hours, I was driving by the new Bolivia River Walk when I noticed the sky glowing brightly with oranges, yellows and reds. I just had to pull off to capture God’s amazing artistry. —Donald Bernard, Leland, Brunswick EMC
Mimi, our 7-year-old boxer girl, enjoys a beautiful North Carolina afternoon. —Kathleen DeNike, Bolivia, Brunswick EMC
My granddaughter, Kaitlin, cuddling with her first puppy, “Louie.” —Leda Winebarger, Todd, Blue Ridge Electric
Why were my tomatoes missing so many leaves? Then I saw nature’s pesticide in the form of the parasitoid wasp that laid her eggs inside this hornworm. When the adults emerge, they will kill the hornworm! —Erika Young, Shannon, Lumbee River EMC
My grandfather, Sgt. Ray Jackson, salutes the flag on Ocean Isle Beach on Veteran’s Day. —Bailey Martin, Huntersville, Blue Ridge Energy
Robeson County’s large Native American population, called “Lumbees,” hold pow wows in the fall and the spring. The Lumbee tribe comes together to enjoy traditional dancing, music, food, crafts and stories. —Nancy Johnson, Lumberton, Lumbee River EMC
