And now for something completely different…

Rodeo Sunset_reducedThis was the sunset on July 9th near Limerick, SK as we were making our way home from a day in the sun surrounded by action, rodeo action that is. If I tilted the camera a little to the south I would have captured sheet lighting and ink black thunderclouds that made us move a little faster to avoid hail!

This was the most amazing sky to end another day of learning. Our friend Rob and his wife Pat invited us to ride along to the Wood Mountain Rodeo to “shoot the action” as he put it. Well, I had never considered myself all that interested in rodeos or capturing sports action. Truth be told, I wasn’t sure if I could figure out the proper settings to freeze action. Did I mention already, it was a day of learning and I was pleased when I finally had a day last week to preview, cull and select the images. I had forgotten about the busy day but looking at the images it brought the experience back to me! Meanwhile I thought I’d share some rodeo action from my travel and photography blog. Enjoy!

The packing for Art Quilt Campus continues and cleaning the house is on the agenda for the rest of the day. The Open House is just around the corner!

  1. I have seen this post before but cam across it again today. What a spectacular sunset. I love this photo. Reminds me of the light in some of Lyonel Feininger’s paintings!

    Anna – congratulations on these truly splendid action shots and photo of the magnificent sky. What a pleasure to view them all. Your skills at capturing prairie life are very well-honed and the photos always a delight to see.
