September Horse Races

Saturday and Sunday of this week brought the final installment of horse races in Montrose for the year. Sunday’s races were great – Not too hot, not windy, exciting action, and more importantly, no one got hurt. The turnout for Sunday wasn’t as impressive as it has been, but I think everyone that was there was having a great time.  I’m already itching for June and the next round of Black Canyon Horse Racing Association races! (There is also rumor of possibly pairing the races up with some other infield events next year for some added excitement…)

Here are Sunday’s highlights!



Here are a few bonus shots from race 3, by special request –

Back to the (horse) Races Again

It’s summer again here on the Western Slope of Colorado and that means that it is once again time for the Black Canyon Horse Racing Association race meets! The local horse races are among my favorite summertime activities; they are cheap, family-friendly, fun, and most of all they are great opportunities for me to get my camera out and do what I do.

Although I couldn’t make it outfor Saturday, I did get to go out and enjoy all of Sunday’s races. Here are the highlights!

I also have pictures from the race meet at the 2012 Montrose County Fair & Rodeo, along with shots from the fair parade and the rodeo.

Horse Races – Volume 2

Another lovely Sunday afternoon spent with my camera and my oldest munchkin at the county fairgrounds watching horse racing. It was a GORGEOUS day – perfectly sunny and probably 80-85­­°f.

The only thing missing was my new class 10 SD card, which should be in my mailbox in the next 2 days or so. I’m running a class 4 right now, so I have no HD video capabilities and I can only take 4-5 exposures at a time in RAW burst mode. So I rolled in JPEG all day, but the light was great and my settings were spot on, so I’m SUPER happy with what turned out. Take a look at some of the highlights from this wonderful day.
