    • A rodeo is really something to watch. I’m not sure if Germany has rodeos. When you visit the U.S.A. you should consider trying to attend one. Many state and county fairs have rodeos.

      • I haven’t heard of any German rodeos. A friend of mine does western style horse back riding, and the do catch cattle with lassos, but this is not the same. Will definitely visit one in the US when I have the chance!

    • It is true but another cowboy clown steps in and distracts the bull. The rider gets up and walks away. I may add a previous image taken seconds before and the one seconds after in the next couple days.

  1. Great framing and action. Perfect shutter. Can’t see the local farmers organising this with Galloway Belties in the Harbour Square more’s the pity.

    • Thank you John.
      I had my camera set to burst with the hope that one or two images would be usable. The down side was the limit of my buffer. It would take 8 shots and then pause to catch. I did miss some shots as a result.
      I’m going back this year to photograph some more. Lots of fun.

    • Ravi, thank you. It helped that I had my camera set to burst in the hope that one or two shots would be in focus and capture the right movement. Things moved very quickly.

    • Thank you, Anne. I really enjoy photographing rodeos. The enthusiasm may have something to do with the quality of the images. At least I’d like to think so.
