After a year and a half of including a ‘pic of the week’ at the end of my weekly training summary, I’ve decided to let it stand as a post of its own. I’m also implementing a rule that the Friday Foto needs to have been taken sometime in the last week. No recycling. I am doing this to keep me engaged in building my photography skills, and to make me work harder to get fresh shots. Click here to see my previous Friday Foto posts.
After spending the afternoon doing a 5.5 hour hike with the kids in Bryce Canyon, I went for a walk from the hotel to see if I could get any interesting sunset shots. The western sky was filled with smoke from the day-old Shingle Fire, creating an intense orange curtain hanging over the edge of the plateau. There was a rodeo arena two blocks away and I headed over there even though there was not an event schedule for the evening. I lucked out and happened to get there as a guy was getting ready for the next night’s rodeo with a few friends helping and cheering him on. I hung out and enjoyed the show.
