Exploring the World – One Image at a Time

Barrel Racing

Western Images Page

It’s done.  I created a Western Images page.  To this page I will add photos from rodeos, barrel racing and other photos that reflect the name of the page.  When photos are added I will post here and say what event they were taken at.  The photos just added were taken at the Top Line Rodeo, held July 18 & 19 2020 at Clearview Arena.  This was the first rodeo in the Qu’Appelle Valley Open Rodeo Series 2020.  I hope you enjoy this new page. You can find it listed under Gallery.  Comment s are welcome.

PWP Week of July 26 2020

Happy August 1.  Happy long weekend to my Canadian friends.  And a good friend is celebrating a birthday.  Birthday wishes coming your way.

This week’s collection is mixture of images.  There was no travelling, spent some time in Studio 13.  Practicing with my Lensbaby Composer.  Our flowers are starting to bloom so I have lots to practice on.   I’ve included a few barrel racing and rodeo ones taken the weekend of July 18.  The one of the steer wrestle did quite well on Instagram. My assistant the Trail Camera caught an encounter between the resident fox and our visiting raccoon.

I’m thinking of creating a “Western Images” page of rodeo, barrel racing, western accessories and horses.  And a “Treasures and Keepsake” page.  I’ve included a few of these shots in this week’s collection.

PWP Week of July 19 2020

Another week in the book.  It was a hot humid one here.  The Boy and I spent a lot of time in the house.  Sunday wasn’t too bad, which was a good thing as I spent a few more hours photographing the rodeo slack.  Lots of pictures of cowgirls and cowboys riding gorgeous horses.  The trail camera did an awesome job of capturing our deer and the foxes that share space with us.  I did manage to get pictures myself of a doe and later two fawns.  Due to the high temperatures we spent some time creating in Studio 13.  I hope you enjoy this week’s photos.  We had fun taking them and editing them.  Till next week!

PWP Week of July 12 2020

This week marks the half way point of July.  Summer is going by really fast.  Most days the weather doesn’t realize it’s summer.  Nights and mornings are pretty cool.  The Boy and I went on a rode trip and broadened our horizons and add new content. Found some more wall murals in a small town.  These are pretty old but I think they are still wonderful. My assistant the trail camera took some wonderful shots of three whitetail does.  I’ve included quite a few of them as there are so beautiful.  Such big eyes. The first rodeo since Convid9 appeared happened this weekend.  I went and photographed some of the slack Saturday AM.  It was a night rodeo so that makes it a no go for me. I’ve included a few from the day.  Nice horses.  Good riders.   Hope you enjoy this weeks collection.

High School Rodeo

Yesterday I attended my first high school rodeo.  Such eager and dedicated young people.  And gorgeous horses.  I could have brought a trailer load home.  It was horribly cold out, Mother Nature was blowing out of the Northwest straight into the bleachers.  The photos you are about to see are the juniors.  I was too frozen to stay for the seniors.   By the time the juniors were finished I couldn’t tell the difference between camera shake and body shake.  Hope you enjoy the action.

I was able to attend some barrel racing the summer of 2018.  Here are some of the photos I was able to catch.  Hopefully I will be able to photography more in  2019.  I am hoping to start a page in the Gallery.  Enjoy.
