A cowboy at the Cody Rodeo, Wyoming.
I won the Northumbria Trophy for this image as the best image in the photo travel section of the Northern Counties Photographic Federation competition, September 2011. It was placed first in the digital Image Of The Year in Stockton Camera Club 2011/12 and also featured in the British Airways Highlife magazine Travel Photography Competition.
I was contacted by the marketing director of Stetson hats in the USA asking if the cowboy hat in the image was indeed a genuine "Stetson" they would like to use the image for marketing purposes - alas no wording can be seen inside the hat!
