Nationally Published Advertising and Editorial Cowboy Photographer and Western Lifestyle Advertising Photographer, Steve Thornton

Sunrise in Colorado - This project started well before sunrise which was about 7 AM. We were on the ranch about 5:30 AM to call in the herd of horses. The cowboys then saddled up and rode out at pre-dawn to locate the herd of cattle, which wound up being about a mile away, and drive them to the location I had scouted a few days before. I drove my 4 wheel drive Explorer to the location and set up my cameras. I had several radios in use to be able to communicate with the cowboys as to the status of them pushing the cattle in position and then directing them where to push the herd next. Literally seconds before the sun broke over the top of the mountains the cattle showed up.

Shot with a Canon Professional Digital Camera & a Canon 400mm I.S. f2.8 lens shot wide open, 200 ISO in RAW mode & processed in Photoshop.
