I wanted to reblog this image for a couple of reasons, the Calgary Stampede is less that three weeks away, it is always great fun with lots of photo opportunities. I also wanted to share with you some news; I have learned this week, that this image has been licensed for publication through Alamy. Unfortunately I never find out who purchased the rights to use the image, I do know that it is a large business who will use for marketing material.
The original post from Stampede 2013: I was down at the Stampede Grounds yesterday, after volunteering at the Western Photo Gallery for a shift, Bill and I headed over watch the chuck wagon races. We indulged in the usually beer and hot dog, not bad, then tried the mini donuts,which we had to throw away because they were undercooked. The inside was still raw and runny!
Walking about I took a few pictures of the the midway with my fish-eye lens. The sky over Calgary just starting to change colour to a dark blue after the sun has set. Catching all the rides moving at the same time was a stroke of luck!
I hope you enjoy the Calgary Stampede.
