8 seconds Ride Done 91points

This is the very next capture I took of J. W. Harris as he completed his 8 second ride on "Little Eagle" for an outstanding 91 points. Trying to get all rides on every rider is a necessity as I do not know who will be the winner and trying to get the right POV captures in this fast paced event requires moving from one end to the other to get the right vantage point. Most are take from ground (Knee) at mid arena level. Comment welcome.

Emile, you definitely nailed this one too, my friend! Again, the clarity, lighting, detail, & stop action are superb! Sounds like a challenging assignment but I know it will be a success!

You are one brave man, my friend! I can't imagine being in the middle of all the fast paced action - bulls and riders flying every which way and having the wherewithal to concentrate on the photo capture rather than my own hide!! :) :) Another amazing capture - excellent work (in all regards!:)

Your "rodeo" images are the best. They are all so sharp with vivid colors. Amazing Emile.
