*Encierro

In small villages throughout Spain the traditional running of the bulls is transformed into an event that takes place several times a year. Whether it be the village yearly holidays or other holidays they are always associated
to religious beliefs, saints, the holy virgin and other divinities are all pretext to get out on the streets and celebrate. In the smaller villages, the bulls are replaced by cows. But don't let that fool you, they may be smaller then bulls, but they are, faster, meaner and their horns are so much pointier, almost dagger like in some cases.

Some statistics

Shot with intervals between each picture of 2 seconds
Learned a lesson: Scenes like these would benefit from shorter intervals so as to capture more of the action.

64 GB of memory cards

1:20hrs of non stop shooting

No animals or humans were hurt in the making of this movie But my 5D Mark II was tipped over when a cow passed by too close and the horn crossed the boards protecting me and touched the tripod and tipped the camera.
