Midway at the Calgary Stampede

This year the Stampede started its 10 day run with a lot of cold, wet weather.  I made it down to the grounds with my good friend Dan Pichette on the Thursday before the big final weekend.  We picked a good night as it was warm, there was a great sky in the evening and the grounds were busy but not packed.

We brought the tripods for the purpose of playing with long exposures on the lights of the rides, games and kiosks around the fairgrounds.  Here is some of the work I came home with.  Dan made some dynamite images and I’m bugging him to let me throw a couple of his images up here too.  Not yet, but maybe soon.

I always have a lot of fun at the Stampede whether it’s watching the rodeo, checking out the art exhibit, listening the outdoor concerts or roaming the fair.

When I’m down there with a camera, I have yet to not get inspired by all of the commotion and excitement.
