Gettin' western on the Fourth

The Central South Dakota Photography Club used the 2013 Fort Pierre Fourth of July Rodeo as a photo walk and we weren't disappointed in action to shoot or the quality of light.

I was very happy with my photos and concentrated on cowboys and western-style images as much as I did rodeo action. This first image illustrates the life of a rodeo circuit cowboy catching some sleep whenever and where ever he can.

I've been stalking all day waiting for your annual Ft Pierre fireworks photo :) Excellent pictures from the rodeo!

It's funny Sarah, I'm sure you aren't the only one that thinks I do an "annual" Ft. Pierre fireworks photo. I kind of laughed last year when no one seemed to notice that I shot fireworks in Mobridge instead, so I wondered what would happen this year. Truth is I did shoot some fireworks photos last night, but nothing that I'm terribly excited about. Just for you though, I promise I will post one tomorrow. :)
