As many of you know, I love to watch and observe all kinds of animals. So, an invitation to photograph an authentic West Texas cattle roundup was quickly accepted. Bobby and I took a leisurely drive through the Texas Hill Country on our way to the Texas Panhandle. Along the way we were fortunate to see the highways filled with assorted wildflowers. As we got further west, we stopped several times to photograph horses, abandoned homes, several county courthouses and took a drive through Palo Duro Canyon State Park just outside of Amarillo. At the ranch near Clarendon, the cowboys rounded up all the cattle to be able to work the calves with the needed vaccinations, branding, etc. Every minute was exciting and also a challenge to obtain images that represented the actions and appearance of the working cowboy and their horses. Some of these photos are present in the galleries: Just Texas; Domestic Animals: and Flowers. It was an awesome adventure!! To see some of the photos, click here to visit my set on Flickr.
