Another fabulous image, Frank.

It seems the rain has just started to fall on these blokes?
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ray, It had been coming down a little while, it was blowing, thundering, flashes of lightning...Cold too, I sent Ellie to get my coat! smile
This is one of my favorites in your series! I love how you can clearly see the rain starting to speckle their shirts and the horses hides!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Elizabeth, mine too, that rain was certainly coming down.

Looks like it's raining. You sure this isn't in England somewhere? Judging by their damp shirts, they have been there for a while.
Frank L Croston.: Chucking it down, I might as well been at home! They never stopped, some put jackets on, then just carried on, it was like Durango, Alan ! smile
What rain- these guys don't worry about such trivia
Frank L Croston.: Cold rain too, Martin! They didn't seem to be bothered.

Fantastic shot - they look so stoical in that rain
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Anne, that would have been my title if I'd not had the general 'roping' one.
This series of great images gets better every day Frank.

I like this side/rear view, Frank - gives a feeling for their patience, but also their readiness
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Elisabeth, yes, they had plenty of both...smile
I guess they've all been at it for some time! Lovely presentation, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Some time, Tom...It was hot early on, believe it or not we were worried about dust in the cameras, and then down came the rain! Thanks very much.
