Cowboy Up by grizzlysghost

Cowboy Up

Yup, that's a real smokin' stick.

219 frames and a pack of cigs, and this is what you get. An underwater cowboy. Who knew.

T'was my son's idea to blow air out of the cig :)

*"Behind the scenes" look, about to take the plunge:

Is it possible your son is as genius as you? Def Fav, grizzly man that you are. :)
January 21st, 2013  
Wow - this is an incredibly shot!
January 21st, 2013  
@rockinrobyn Haha, yes, that's entirely possible! Thanks Robyn! :)
January 22nd, 2013  
Fun that the grizzly cub gets in on the act! This is my favorite of the group.
January 22nd, 2013  
Amazing Aaron. I thought this was some photoshop trickery but you really had your head in the water!
January 22nd, 2013  
Wow!!! I really have no words...lol!
January 22nd, 2013  
@michaelelliott Haha, you should know by now how much I shun photoshop Michael! Yes, my head really is in the water! In fact, I think I might still have a little stubborn water in my right ear! :)
January 22nd, 2013  
Ha, this is the best...you are crazy. What a great and creative shot.
January 22nd, 2013  
@grizzlysghost - haha you're water logged! Yes I too "shun" the p'shop!
January 22nd, 2013  
Crazy Fav! Thank God for your imagination, Aaron! Always entertaining!
January 22nd, 2013  
wow wow wow what a great shot
January 22nd, 2013  
Ow, your eyes must have hurt but this is so worth the pain!
January 23rd, 2013  
@nadines Haha, thanks so much for recognizing that fact! After about a dozen dunks with my eyes forced open, they were very sore and tired!
January 23rd, 2013  
LOL!!!! This Rocks. You are a Man of many talents and one heck if an imagination. Another FAV
January 24th, 2013  
I love this shot Aaron - great idea - fav
January 24th, 2013  
brilliant.. that is all :-)
January 25th, 2013  
The bubbles from the cigarette are what makes this one my favorite. And not only does it occur to me that your eyes hurt because of the water, but also that light! You're a visionary
January 25th, 2013  
Fantastic shot!
January 25th, 2013  
brilliant, fav!
January 26th, 2013  
Omg! I hate that I am so busy and miss a lot of great photos as they go up! This is amazing! How do you get a cigarette not to fall apart underwater?
January 28th, 2013  
@espyetta Each one lasted for about as long as I could hold my breath. A couple of them "blew out" so the bubbles came out the side, but for the most part, they held up surprisingly well :)
January 28th, 2013  
well done, great shot, must have taken a lot of effort!
January 30th, 2013  
@Scrivna Thanks Ross! I was surprised by how winded I got just from holding my breath. I wound up dunking my head 8 times, and took about 5 shots per dunk. To be honest, glad it's over :)
January 30th, 2013  
Just saw this on the selfies thread...missed it first time around. FANTASTIC effort!!!
February 2nd, 2013  
Amazing Photo of a really great idea!
February 7th, 2013  
Fantastic set up, and brilliant lighting and expression, super.
February 9th, 2013  
Oh wow! New to this website and absolutely love love love your shots :)
April 4th, 2013  
@phutami Thanks so much, and welcome to 365! :)
April 4th, 2013  
Wow! I don't remember seeing this one...probably because I was so new when this was posted! This is amazing! You dream up some fantastic shots! Fav!
