We welcome your pictures. We're looking for images that give a glimpse of the ranching, cowboy, and rural and working life of the West of today and yesterday. We're looking for vintage photos and contemporary photos: family photos, images of where you live and work, and the area around you. 

If you have a photo to share, email us for information about sending it to us.

Each week, we'll post selected photos from those received. We'll also share some photos posted previously elsewhere at CowboyPoetry.com.

North Dakota rancher, writer, and poet Rodney Nelson shares photos taken on the last day of 2008 at his ranch in Sims. He told us:

We took a family photo so we could get our Christmas cards done. Showing off our new young Haflinger team, Waylon and Willie, are Rodney, Teri, Lafe, and Annika Nelson.

Haystacks:

We put the hats on just to have our picture taken.

South Dakota rancher, poet, and writer Robert Dennis shares photos from his ranch. He told us:

These are shots from the summer of 2008. A neighbor named Rick and my  son Chance and I went to doctor some lame yearlings. I took the camera along to get some action shots. They caught them and I gave the shots to the cattle. It goes a lot faster if they don't let me rope!


Rick and Chance getting ready to catch one.



Rick's caught the front and Chance is moving in for the heels.  Chance has the trap set and Rick is leading her forward.

Here's what it looks like from the ground after they stretch one out to hold it so vaccine can be administered.



It was a good day and we got quite a few treated. They even let me rope a few!
 

Robert Dennis has contributed other interesting photos to Picture the West, including:

Photos taken while he was "out riding on yearlings"

Photos of his mares and colts

Family photos from the 1920s and 1940s

Photos and stories from his ranch and Red Owl

Area photos from the early 1900s
