The sport of speed

It's hard to get a good composition with the sport of barrel racing. Most times the racing is done after dark, which puts limits on my options. But this time I got lucky. I suppose that is because this was not a horse show, but a barrel race. So instead of having to wait for all the boring classes to be over before getting to the racing, the racing started first thing, and it was still a little light.

Most of the time, the arena lights can really get in the way, like causing unwanted glares, or forcing me to move to a position I don't want to be, but this time I was able to incorporate them as part of the composition. I am pleased with the results.
