*Additional note: Someone asked me via e-mail how I produced this image in Photoshop. My answer: It wasn’t. It has been color-corrected and sharpened, since it was shot as a Raw image (.CR2, not .DNG), but otherwise was produced in-camera. A good question!

I’ve been very fortunate over these many years that a great number of folks at a great number of rodeos have been gracious enough to allow me into their lives and actually work with me in the quest to realize an iconic vision of the American West.

The Eddyville Rodeo was just such a place.

One of my dearest friends is seven feet tall, a giant among his peers (I’m 6’2″ with my shoes off, so I’m not used to feeling short–but I feel like a 3-year-old around grown-ups when he’s standing next to me).

I imagine this aspen sapling feels a bit like my friend in a crowd.
