A voting bracket will be decided upon when the time comes. You will be allowed to vote for multiple entries.

    OK, enough of that bureaucratic reading. Let the contest begin!!!

    As the sun rises, the moon hangs over a grain elevator in La Junta, Colorado. Interesting use for an old grain hopper.
