I have received several entries so far, and I’m excited to showcase your talents in the final rounds of this contest. Although the deadline was supposed to be tomorrow, I’m extending that date to next Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2010 to accommodate the requests of many readers who have said they need a little more time to capture those special moments around the ranch.

The first-place winner will receive a copy ofRanch Style: The Artistic Culture and Design of the Real West [5] by David R. Stoecklein. The second place photographer will receive a copy of Great Ranches of the West [6] by Jim Keen, both are $50 values and make beautiful conversation pieces to place on your coffee table at home.

It’s simple to enter. Just send your favorite fall photos to [email protected], and include your name and mailing address with your entry. All photos will be compiled into a complete photo album for viewing, with the top 10 available to readers to vote for their favorites. For complete contest information, link here [7].
