From Steve:
The photo was taken at the Bungendore Rodeo (Just north of Canberra Australia) in October 2010.

This shot was of a Saddlebronc Rider who's horse went down on it's front legs and did a complete barrel roll. The rider was unfortunate to get caught underneath for a brief moment but was not seriously hurt. Luckily the speed of the Canon 7D was a enough to allow me to get this shot. Coupled with the new Canon 70-200 f2.8L Mk II it has provided me with opportunity to capture many splendid images around the Rodeo circuit here in Australia.
