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

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
With little light pollution and relative isolation, the Outer Banks is like a playground for an astrophotographer. My wife and I feel in love with the place. Photo taken at Frisco Beach.—Scott Cureton, Polkton, a member of Pee Dee Electric
