Austin Boardwalk

A cloudy gray morning in Austin along the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail at Lady Bird Lake, a lush, urban path that meanders along the water’s edge and passes by neighborhoods, ball fields, and cultural attractions. The boardwalk also has great views of the ever-changing Austin Skyline. As I mentioned the sky was gray and cloudy when we arrived but we hung around for a bit as the clouds started to break up and we did manage to capture a few shots before retreating from the heat.

 

Thanks for stopping!

Saddle Bronc Riding

Saddle Bronc Riding or Saddleback Bronco riding was one of the first events at the Wimberley July 4th Rodeo in Texas. Saddle bronc riding is a classic event, both a complement and contrast to the wilder spectacles of bareback riding and bull riding. This event requires strength to be sure, but the event also demands style, grace and precise timing. Dave Wilson and I shuffled around the rodeo arena getting the best vantage point for each event. Since this was the first event we still had some decent light to shoot with as the sun was just going down. Dave recently posted a similar shot of this same rider from the Rodeo, noting the determination in his face.
