During a recent holiday in America we spent two nights in Cody, Wyoming. During the summer months there is a rodeo each night so we decided to go as we had never been to one before. We were advised to sit in the "Buzzardís Roost" part of the area as this was just above the pens where the horses & bulls were loaded for the cowboys to mount them. They were good seats but as soon as the rider and horse/bulls exited the pens they were racing away from us, so not so good for photography as most of the shots were of a rear view. But at least we were not facing the setting sun. The night was really good fun but another problem was the light, it didnít start till 8pm and finished at 10. The finale was cowboys riding bulls but by then the sun had gone down the floodlights were on and I was up to 3200 ISO, an aperture of f3.2 and the fastest shutter speed I could manage was 1/250 sec! I started of the evening using an ISO of 800, this shot was ISO 1000, f3.2 & 1/640 sec. Smile

What this sort of thing does to their backs I hate to think!

Great shot but licensed cruelty to animals is never a good thing to see. Sad
