EDITOR'S NOTE: We've extended voting. You can now vote every day until noon February 19.
In February, we have been celebrating the peaceful moments that are so unique to country living.
It’s been a joy to see readers share their favorite “quiet moments on the ranch” photos with gorgeous images of colorful horizons, hard-working cow dogs and horses, mama cows nurturing their calves, quiet rides in the pasture or feedlot and families bonding together on the ranch.

With an amazing collection of photos, we sorted through the images to select 20 finalists. Congratulations to Troy Bishopp, Lea Leggitt, Carolyn Buhman, Gricel O. Borjas, Makayla Flower, Laura Pasket, Jamie Nield, D2 Ranch, Joshua Dorn, Darcy Sexson, Lexi Harris, Melanie Kimpton, Mark Farr, Johnna Davis, Zac Hall, Alex Carone, Molly Sims, Courtney Tomey, Kendra Davis and Courtney Varner.
Now we need your help in choosing our winners. The champion photographer will receive a pair of Twisted X driving moccasins and the reserve champion will receive a $50 VISA gift card. Plus, three randomly selected voters will receive a Twisted X hat.
