This shot of bull riders lining up for introductions prior to their rides at the Silver Spurs Rodeo in Orlando, Florida was a tough one to get. The details on this one are: 5DMKII with Canon 70-200 2.8L @200mm f/2.8 1/80 ISO 4000.
I took a few exposures but settled on this one because I felt the looks on their face communicated everything from apprehension to confidence.

Above: The one that scared the birds away
I’m starting to go through my images from St. Augustine. The one you see above is the second from the series and it was shot at the Castillo de san Marcos Fort near downtown. If you look closely at the top left, you’ll see a pigeon flying away as the smoke billowed towards it immediately after the cannon fired.
Below is just a quite snapshot of my kids Ethan and Grace sitting in the courtyard a few minutes after the image. I’ll be going through the images in the next week or so, stay tuned.
