Favorite Landscapes

Have you joined the landscape challenge yet? This year, the Wilson County News and La Vernia News have decided to join a challenge going around Facebook through our “South Texas Photo Contest.” The challenge goes like this, “Join the challenge of posting a picture of some landscape from a place where you’ve been, where the main requirement is that you NOT appear in it.” Whether you have already participated in the challenge, or were going to, or didn’t intend to, we invite our readers to send your favorite landscape photos to us for a chance to win prizes!
