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.

Thanks for stopping!

Mother Ship

Another view of the Texas State Capitol building rotunda. It was a great trip, so much so I have a second outing planned with Dave Wilson (and More Austin Buddies I hope) in a month or so, hopefully, I will see a bit more of this really cool city. It just reminded me of inside a spaceship the way it looked, I suppose being the capital of Texas this is somewhat of the mother ship.
