Roping

Last Saturday was branding day at Deep Springs. The calves seemed a bit feistier than last year, which resulted in lots of noise, copious clouds of dust, and some great cowboy action shots. The ropers were three friends who ranch near Lone Pine, CA, while the Deep Springs students and staff provided the calf wrestling, vaccinating, ear tagging, branding and other unmentionable services.

    • Yeah, it was pretty fast action, and fairly unpredictable, which is not my usual shooting style. I’ve got a lot of almost-but-not-quite shots in the folder. It’s a lot of fun to photograph, though!
