This weeks challenge is culture. As I have not been out of the country for some time I’ll just highlight the culture in my part of the world. This shot is from behind the scenes at the Stoneyford Rodeo. Stoneyford is a tiny town in the hills of Northern California located about 2 hours NW of Sacramento. I had some great shots of cowboys but I had to go with the cowgirls. It looks like time is standing still here but if you zoom in to the middle you will notice the rodeo queen from 2011 talking on her cell phone. She is savoring the her last stand as queen as she is about to give up her title to the new 2012 queen.
