First rodeo photography attempts

Since it is me, I have about 200 pictures from the Stampede Rodeo yesterday---we saw bareback riding, saddle bronc, bull riding, barrel racing, tie-down roping, steer wrestling and wild pony riding.

I am just starting to go through them, but this series of three jumped out at me as kind of okay--considering the pictures were taken from Level 5 of the seating area in bright daylight---I was surprised how good they turned out.

I am getting pretty good at stopping the action so as to get clear shots--that is the fun part for me. I am learning a lot the more I practice, but I sure have a long way to go.

Stay tuned for a jillion more shots as I get to it.

Paige, they are wonderful. I can "feel" the ouch when the cowboy got bucked off.

Keep safe on your travels

Enjoy Carol

Good pictures. Now you know why Sports Illustrated photographers use cameras which shoot 10 frames a second.

Shoot'm cowgirl:)
