photoblog image get the heel Byron!...

get the heel Byron!...

The first rider gets the horns, then the second the heels, to stop the clock...If they completed it, the average time was about 13sec's.

Excellent!! I love how you caught Jim's horse "cutting" to the left (as he's trained to do), while Byrons horse just charges ahead! That steer has a little heart on his hip! smile Just sayin'...
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Elizabeth, and for the explanation of tactics! smile So he does...Must have seen you...smile
i think that Byron had the harder part to this exercise Frank...
you are right into the action with this shot... i can hear to hooves and smell the dust....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Can you feel the heat as well, Peter? It was hot! I thought that the heeler had the hardest job too, though just getting on a horse would have been enough for me!

Looks like you borrowed this one from Nellie, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: No, all mine, Ray, I wouldn't mind borrowing some though, hers are better than mine....smile

Wonderful & skilful stuff isn't it!
Frank L Croston.: It really is, Chris, but as with all experts, they make it look easy.

I bet the steer just thinks "Any moment now and game over" smile Again, I like the capture of the dust being kicked up.
Frank L Croston.: Some of them did seem a bit weary of it Alan, like, 'do we really have to do this?' The dust was great....For photo's, otherwise, not! smile
I would like to see the lasso in flight just about to go over the steers head, you must be face on to the steer with a lot of dust in the background .That should take more than 13secs to get right .
Frank L Croston.: Anything else? ! Wait 'til Friday, then you can put your order in, staff discount will apply. smile
Clever stuff and you got some cracking pictures Frank
Frank L Croston.: Some of these guy's are ex rodeo champions,Bill. Thanks, much appreciated.

That is quick work Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Amazingly fast, Andrew, I think the fastest was about 11sec's.

Again that somewhat painterly look. Great shot.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Louis, I'm pleased you think so.
Very good action!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Mary.
Another excellent shot Frank, although it does seem a bit hard on the cattle.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Brian. I know some people will see it that way,but I can assure you that they were well treated, and looked after,and none came to any harm.
very cool!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Chantal.
They seem to have the hang of it. Great action shot Frank
Frank L Croston.: They all knew what they were doing, Janet. Thanks.

You have really captured the action Frank
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Anne, it was great to be able to take these. I thought of you yesterday,I came across one of those old mincers in a secondhand store...smile
Aha the pictures are showing again on SC, love the dust, but don't try to change lenses. Nice shot smile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, John, the dust was great for effect, but frightening for cameras....
Another great action shot, Frank
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Tom, glad you like it.
