Kueckelhan Ranch Rodeo on Fri night

What a show the Kueckelhan Ranch Rodeo put on Friday night!  The Kueckelhan Ranch is north of Bonham, Texas on US 78.  It was over 100 degrees when we got there but a cool breeze soon cooled things off.
I am usually not in to rodeos but I really enjoyed our evening. 
My intent for the evening was to try and do what one of my photography teachers did when he  photographed rodeos last year.  Vaughn Wascovich has some really nice photographs using a slow shutter speed.  His shots are fantastic.  Mine look like mistakes.  You can never truly appreciate how hard something is until you try to do it yourself.
I did not get one good shot of the bull riders because I was sitting at the wrong spot.  Darn it.  But the shots underneath the stands turned out pretty decent!

Even more pictures from Alaska

At the first of May, I had the opportunity to go to Alaska as part of a group of photographers aboard the National Geographic Seabird.
Since it is so hot in Texas, I am taking the time to begin the process of going through my many images of Alaska. 
Being from Texas, I had never taken pictures from the bow of a ship.  It was a learning experience for me!  So many of my pictures are blurred from the movement of the ship not being in sync with the movement of my camera!

One of the most extraordinary experiences I had was taking a sea plane over the Le Conte Glacier.  Wow.  It was an amazing experience.

More pictures from Alaska

Oh, to be in the coolness of Alaska instead of the heat of Texas right now.  Just going through the pictures taken in Alaska in May cools my mind and warms my soul.
These are just a few of the images I have gone through so far.  I have lots more!
