Bigfoot in Calgary – a monster truck attacks

1/30 seconds, f/9, ISO 1000

I went down to the Stampede Grounds yesterday with my kids to tour the World of Wheels on its stop in Calgary.  When I told Kian that Bigfoot would be crushing and jumping over cars in a hockey rink he was buzzing with excitement.

I was impressed with the truck’s driver, Kyle Doyle.  Driving a huge vehicle inside a hockey rink would be challenge enough.  Throw in the jumps, brake stands, racing from end to end and tight cornering and it was a great show to watch.

Bigfoot finished the main act with a park on the crumbled automotive heaps – seemed a fitting end to the last of the four shows over the weekend.

Kezia was a bit ambivalent about the monster truck, the loud engine turned her off a bit, but when the motorcycles came out she got right into it.

As soon as she they started performing stunts, Kezia was mimicking their moves while standing in the seating aisle – with the encouragement of the crowd nearby.
