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!

 

If you’re still looking for more awesome Black Canyon Horse Racing Association race meet photos you might want to check out my posts from last year’s races. June 2012 and September 2012. 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.

A Fair Saturday

This past Saturday I switched shifts at work so that I could go to the local fair and get some pictures.

The parade was a 10am, then at 1 were the horse races. 6:30pm brought the rodeo with saddle bronc riding, team roping, barrel racing and finally bull riding. Unfortunately by the time the bull riding happened it was a little dark to get much for quality pictures, but I did manage to get a couple shots of the riders that I think turned out quite nice.

615 pictures later, here are a few that I like!

Tonight is the truck pull and antique tractor pull, so I should have some more good pictures to post.

Today was a wonderful day at the horse races with my girls and my niece. Great fun was had by all, and I managed to get a few good pictures, too!
