Payson Rodeo pays tribute

Photographer: Guy Atchley, Web Producer: Laura Kittell

At last week's Payson Rodeo, a moving tribute was paid to the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots who perished in the Yarnell Hill Fire. The tribute began with 19 riderless horses led by a firefighter in full gear, followed by an angel on horseback. Guy captured the reverence and emotion of the tribute in moving portraits and then went on to showcase the excitement, competition and spectacle of the rodeo.
