Daniel Trifan, a Romanian by birth, an Irish citizen and living in Calgary for the past two years, attended the Calgary Stampede with friends from Limerick City, Ireland on July 7. A student of fine art and painting in Romania and of photography in Ireland, Trifan caught these images of the rodeo and chuckwagons.

"The cowboys of the Stampede amazed me," Trifan told the Journal. "I was delighted to capture my experience through my lens."
