Short Flight by grannyshot
Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…


Taken at the Murphy’s Creek Rodeo, Queensland Australia on 20th March 2010.
Apart from trying to stay on the bull for eight seconds, it must be a real art to hit the ground in a second or less and hopefully not be injured.

    wow! neat action shot, linda! looks like that bull is coming right for you!

  • Thankyou Nadine; it was coming in my direction; I did pull the camera back at the last minute fortunately. Had the lens licked by a bull once when I wasn’t paying attention! Thankyou for looking and taking the time to comment…..xx LInda

    It apears as if you were in the ring (brave girl), fantastic. I’m sure the rider would have been spiting dirt when he came up.

  • Lucky boy if he wasn’t spitting teeth I reckon. They are so very brave unlike me (no not inside the ring, but close enough for my liking) Pulled the camera back in a hurry though. Thankyou for commenting Lyn….xx LInda
