Default Bull Riding - Loudoun County Fair

I promise I'm not just trying to copy griffina6!!!

Last night was a perfect night to drop the top and head out to the Loudoun County Fair in Leesburg, VA to take in some people-watching, bull-riding and deep-fried Oreo eating. The lighting faded fast, but I managed to snap a few shots I think are keepers.

I was pretty high up in the stands, shooting with a 400mm zoom.

This is my first real attempt at fast action sports, and I really enjoyed it. I know the lens I was using wasn't very fast, but I think given the distance and lighting it was pretty good. For the future, I'll try and push my way closer!

The Bull Riding shots are very good, but I really like the Non-Bull Riding shots!

Thanks! The people watching was as much fun as the rodeo itself.
