Bull Rider Down 2012

This is a little hard too make out because of the dust, but if you look at this large (by pressing "L"), you can see the face of the bull rider and the rope from the bull wrapped around the spur on the downed rider's boot. His leg is pulled at a truly bad angle. There are two bull fighters in this picture, who basically saved this guy, by diverting the bull. One of them is to the right, and the other is behind the bull, but you can see his hand underneath the bull. The previous picture in my photostream shows another picture from this same sequence. Seeing this rider walk off, under his own power, was amazing.


Other pictures I've taken over the years at our local rodeo, can be seen here.


Other picture of bull riding that I've taken, can be seen, logically enough, in my Bull Riding set.
