This past Friday night I went over to the Barrel racing at the equestrian park in Queen Creek Arizona. Had a lot of fun taking photos and playing with camera settings. The riders were outstanding and trying to capture the action was proving quite tough for me. It is amazing that I can capture a NASCAR car doing 200 mph with no problem but capturing horses in motion is a little tougher. In part I think I was too far away from the action and a little elevated since I was up in the stands. I also tried to get photos at all three barrels instead of focusing on just the one closest to me. Lesson learned for me. I plan on going back since they do this every week. I had a lot of fun.
I can’t wait to go back every Friday that I am in Arizona.
