Still cleaning out the vault. This one is from the 2010 Le Grande Rodeo here in Le Grande, Ca.

Hope you enjoy, Bill

I do enjoy this, Bill.
I love small rodeos where people can get close to the action without needing a special pass.
You've taken advantage with this excellent image.
My only nit is the background is not OOF enough for me, especially the cars.

Very nice. Makes me want to check out a smaller rodeo like this.

Thanks. The smaller rodeos are, to me, much more fun to photograph. You can get up close and personal with the people. This particular photo was taken at some distance away and cropped. Even though it was taken at apeture f/2.8, the background still has a fair amount of clarity. I need a longer lens! I'm pretty excited about the new Sigma tele photo lens coming out.
