I owe the inspiration for this shot to Jerry Hayes who shot the rodeo a couple of years ago and came away with one of the most striking shots I’ve seen in years. This one pales in comparison and, given that Jerry was shooting this evening as well, I’m sure he came away with something better.
Regardless of how good Jerry’s picture is, this one shows the standard bearer in the arena during the singing of the national anthem at the start of the event. The lighting was wonderfully dramatic and I love the contrast between the dark, monochrome background and the vibrant colours of the rider and flag.
