Running the Cans - Holly & Kakadu by 

Holly is a beautiful young cowgirl whom I have had the pleasure of photographing on a number of occassions. Kakadu was her chosen mount for running successful barrels.

Kakadu was recently taken by a mistery virus not long after the image above was taken. It was a sudden and very sad loss. Kakadu had a huge heart and gave his all every run.

This image has been treated in PS3 and using the Topaz filter in honour of Kakadu’s passing.

Image taken Whittlesea Rodeo Feb 2011.
Olympus E520

For Holly, Karen & Terrence.
