This February, we teamed up with Twisted X to launch a photo contest titled, “Quiet moments on the ranch.”

We hoped the theme would capture the peace and calm that all of us in agriculture get to experience every day in rural America.

Of course, we weren’t disappointed. Readers from here and abroad submitted their favorite photos, and we compiled the images into a beautiful collection.

View all the photographs here.

From there, we narrowed down the 175+ entries to 20 finalists. Then, we asked you to help us select our champions.

View the finalists gallery here.

We’re excited to announce the winners today, and we even have a few prizes to give away as a thank you to our voters.

Congratulations to our grand champion photographer, Molly Sims, with her entry, “Quiet times.” Molly will receive a pair of Twisted X driving moccasins, courtesy of our contest sponsor, Twisted X.

Plus, we’ve randomly selected three voters who helped select our champions Our lucky winners will receive a Twisted X ball cap. Congratulations to Sheron Lemley, Shawn Morris and Hannah Brown.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter photos and vote. These photo contests are always a ton of fun, and I love getting a sneak peek into your lives on the ranch.
