The Fiesta De Los Vaqueros, aka the Tucson Rodeo, is just one of many delightful Southern Arizona Winter events; albeit a very big one. I attended one day in 2013 and one day in 2014. The latter was better for me because I got smart and acquired a Press Pass that allowed me to get down in the arena for this photo shoot. Last year I was way up in the bleachers. I can say it's worth it to get a premium seat as close to the action as you can get. The closer you are the more exciting it is. Enjoy! I did.
Bull Rider In Air -For their ride to qualify, a bull rider must stay on his bull for a minimum of eight seconds, which must seem like an eternity. These 2000 pound monsters are powerful and agile and easily toss full-grown men high into the air. I thought this cowboy's dismount was particularly artful.
