Another Magazine Cover Image

Tags

Did I mention in a previous post that having an image of mine be on a magazine cover never gets old? Well… it never gets old.

I had a great time covering the historic Rooftop Rodeo in gorgeous Estes Park, Colorado on July 08, 2021. Rodeo is so family oriented and such a traditional event. It is one of the reasons I like covering it so much. Displaying some of that family atmosphere about rodeo was Rooftop Rodeo Chairman Mark Purdy, as he talked with me and another photographer friend for a bit behind the scenes while holding his two-year-old granddaughter Caroline. I snapped a quick photo while we were talking and I thought it managed to capture the love of a grandpa for his grandchild.

As a pleasant surprise, so did The Fence Post magazine.

Lincoln Rogers’ photo of Rooftop Rodeo Chairman Mark Purdy and his two-year-old granddaughter Caroline on the cover of the July 19, 2021 issue of The Fence Post magazine.

Many thanks to The Fence Post magazine for choosing that image to be on their cover for the week of July 19, 2021.

Having one of my photos on the cover of a magazine never gets old to me.

The editors make the choice for their covers and I appreciate it when God blesses me as they choose an image of mine. Many thanks to The Fence Post magazine for choosing one of my photos from the Greeley Stampede rodeo action in 2021 to make the cover of the July 5th print edition.

National Western Complex Construction

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I had the pleasure of being able to visit the National Western Center/Complex in Denver, CO and take photos of the construction progress, as well as talk to a number of the spokespeople for the entities involved in the construction and expansion of the National Western Center grounds and buildings. Most people will know the location as the site where the historic National Western Stock Show takes place every January.

Construction in June 2021 at the National Western Center/Complex in Denver, CO.

What most people don’t know is how massive the scope and size of the expansion and construction project is. After a couple of hours on site, talking to the awesome spokespeople and taking photos of the construction progress, I felt like trying to absorb the information in front of me was akin to drinking water through a firehose!

There is so much going on, beyond just getting the new Stockyards Events Center ready for 2022’s National Western Stock Show and moving ahead with other construction. I have a lot of interview on tape and will be transcribing it ASAP.

I can’t wait to write a number of magazine articles about the progress of the 1.3 billion dollar expansion project and what it means for January 2022 at the National Western Stock Show.

It is impressive! More to come regarding this in the future.

Clowning Around in Elizabeth Rodeo!

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

My latest article with photography is published now on The Fence Post magazine’s website.

It is about the always entertaining rodeo clown, JW Winklepleck, and his thoughts on entertaining a packed house during the 2021 Elizabeth Stampede Rodeo in Elizabeth, CO.

https://www.thefencepost.com/news/clowning-around-at-2021-elizabeth-stampede/

Wearing his typical fashion, Colorado-based rodeo clown JW Winklepleck banters back and forth with the rodeo announcer during a comedy skit to entertain the sold out Sunday afternoon crowd at the 2021 Elizabeth Stampede Rodeo.

In my opinion, after covering a lot of rodeo performances over the last 15+ years, JW is one of the funniest and most spontaneous rodeo funnymen I have had the pleasure of watching.

I hope you enjoy the article.

Yucca Flowers…

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Here in semi-arid Colorado, the Yucca plant can be a nuisance. Oh, I see them often for sale on landscape business lots and in lawn and garden stores, but what people seem to want to purchase to plant around their suburban lawns, we will shovel out or mow down because there are too many.

Honestly, they grow out of control, take up space in our pastures that the horses could graze, and their blades are razor sharp. Yep, I have the scars on my arms and legs to prove it.

But then they flower and… well, then everything is forgiven.

Yucca plants flowering in June, 2021. The soft petals coming out in Colorado.

Kind of reminds me of people. There can seem to be too many, they can be bristly, sharp, and painful, and might even be seen as a nuisance.

But then they flower… and everything is forgiven.

Help your family and friends to flower; to blossom and grow where they are planted. Heck, even yourself. You never know… you might be a Yucca in someone else’s eyes.
