Calgary Stampede

My seventh Calgary Stampede, and fifth consecutive. I hadn’t yet pieced together that I had major back-focus issues with the D7000, and shooting a 200mm at 100-200′ the focus offset was a significant 10′ or so behind the subject – of the 200 or so shots from the rodeo grounds, about 180 were not usable.
