June 29 2017 Carbondale Wild West Rodeo — Photos by Victoria Dempster — Guest Photographer

Victoria shared with us — I hope you like my photos – I loved the Carbondale rodeo. I had the amazing delight of experiencing the Carbondale Rodeo on Thursday 29th June. What an amazing rodeo! I have just moved to the USA from London. I have been travelling around photographing rodeos in Utah and Colorado, I find the rodeo to be an real insight into a part of american culture and life style. Everybody I meet on my travels are incredibly friendly and welcoming, I tried to capture the action and personalities the cowboys, cowgirls and the crowd. Thanks for a great evening.
