It’s getting to be that time of the year when the light gets great.  That’s a good thing for photographers who live and die by the Magic Hour.  Yesterday at the Laguna de Santa Rosa, Bud Pozzini of the Double Tree Ranch and Saddle Shop was giving lessons to calf ropers on his plot of  land at the Laguna.
