I stopped at a rodeo to try out my new 70-200mm 1.2.8L IS usm, Here is a picture of a barrel racer. Let me know what you all think!

Thanks, Randy

Woohoo! The first one was caught as precisely the right moment, when the woman was 'advancing out of the turn'... Very nicely done!

I like the second though, cause it looks like a little overdose on the kickage. I have pictures of those, and am quite embarrassed of myself, but I get a good laugh out of them. Great timing!

Weird, cause I always set up my camera at the third barrel during rodeos too. It seems that everyone's picture turns out better there than the first two.

Or else I just lie, take pictures of my friends doing speed dash, and say it was the third in a barrel run. Heehee.

VVV --tis actually a girl doing speed dash, but it looks the same.
