Past Photos of the Week

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

My daughter, Amy Scoggin Jay took this photo of our granddaughter, Evelyn, who learned to love NC corn on the cob in her Noni’s kitchen at Holden Beach. Her family is currently serving overseas in Germany. —Deborah Scoggin, Lexington, Brunswick Electric
Sunset at Ocean Isle Beach. —Lauren Rhoads, Ocean Isle Beach
Enjoying a summer day. Noticed one of the many different dragonflies we have in Southeastern NC. The dragon seemed to be enjoying my rose. —James Hewett, Ash, Brunswick Electric
Captured this precious jewel (Fontana Lake) while standing on a bridge on NC Highway 28. I absolutely love the reflections on the lake, boats, fluffy clouds and the mountain view. This is God’s country. —Camilla Johnson, Lowell
It was the fourth of July, and I realized that even though I had lived in the mountains my entire life, I had never seen a sunset from Waterrock Knob on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I was blown away. —Sally Dixon, Waynesville
After a typical summer storm, the sun triumphantly broke through the clouds, and a father and daughter enjoyed the moment. It seemed so innocent, reminding me of the value of connecting to others, and the sense of childlike wonder. —Cody Owen, Charlotte
We live on over 50 acres in Stokes County. We are fortunate to have an abundance of wildlife on the property, such as this deer and fawn I spied from the kitchen window. —Patty Young, Westfield, a member of Surry-Yadkin Electric
A friend of mine named Jen Overstreet took this photo of her dog “Maximum Prime” and sent it to me to have a portrait painted because I am a commissioned artist. —Sue Huson, Mebane, a member of Piedmont Electric
Picnic lights in the backyard of the Beaver Dam Historic House in Davidson. —Joseph Lux, Mooresville, a member of EnergyUnited
This is a sunrise in Calabash. I call this picture, “Reflections of Day.” —Mark Head, Sunset Beach, a member of Brunswick Electric
This was the first year my husband and I raised honey bees. In May, our holly tree was in full bloom and you could hear the bees buzzing around it. Holly trees are their favorite. —Corrina Carter, Hillsborough, a member of Piedmont Electric
I took this image at the Freedom Boat Club at Lake Norman in Cornelius. The area has a beautiful vantage point for sunsets and a fabulous boardwalk. —Marc Bernstein, Huntersville, a member of EnergyUnited
