Default Rodeo


Our annual trek to the rodeo, some beer good friends a little excitement and a good time for all. Shot from the stands with my 55-300 zoom. They all walked away from the action unhurt. What an event to practice getting the peak of the action shots, I am not a fan to burst mode and don't use it, I believe it trying for that peak and with my luck the peak would hit between frames of the burst or after the buffer is full. All shot in raw and processed in LR5.

I agree, #2 is spectacular.

I've never quite understood bull riding at all - why would someone want to get on something that they will be off of in a few seconds and then have to worry about bull trying to get at you? At least broncs will leave you alone once you are off their back. Of course, I could never understand why someone would knowingly get on a horse when they knew they were most likely going to have a hard landing. I did that enough with a horse I once owned who thought it was fun to buck me off occasionally. At least I never expected to part company with him and I often stayed on him, but I came off enough in 1 month to cure me of ever being envious of bronc riders.
