Calgary Stampede Rangeland Derby Friday July 11, 2014

Here are a few various shots from the Rangeland Derby for the night of Friday July 11, 2014.  Tonight was a perfect night for the chuckwagons to run.  All of these shots were taken with a Canon 5DMkIII and a 70-200mm IS II lens. 

RCA Diagnostics and Mayfair Diagnostics is my employer so yes...I have a few shots of this wagon.  The race definitely takes on a different feel when you see it from ground level.  The horses are always amazing.

 

Kelly Sutherland is one of the big names in this sport.  He's been doing this for a long time and has won a LOT of races.  Definitely a lucrative gig if you are good at it.

 

 

Even Calgary Police HAWCS came in for a look.

 

A couple of wagons had what appeared to be Go-Pro cameras on the wagon.  That must be an amazing video.

 

These guys are nothing if not intense about what they do.

 

This one horse had on an eye patch.  Not sure why that would be? 

 

Pigs can't fly.  But maybe horses can?
