Thank you everyone that voted on this one & special thanks to all who commented on this one too. I really appreciate it.

I bought this big lens with rodeo in mind & was due to test it out photographing a friend doing a bull ride last year but bad health got in the way & I ended up in hospital instead. It is so good to be able to use this lens for what I bought it for.

The sequence as it happened

Great action shot. I acutally like all the onlookers better than the rider as the rider has his back to us and the onlookers have such great expressions. This is one of those time that a deep DOF helps.
