Sedona, Arizona, USA - May 11, 2013: Three cowboys wrestle with a steer in a cloud of dust, trying to bring it to the ground for branding, neutering and vaccinating. A horseman roped the animal by its hind legs to stop it from escaping, but the ground crew has the dirty job of immobilizing it. Its tail provides the only handy gripping point. This corral is on open range National Forest land in the small red rock community of Pine Valley just outside Sedona. The eroded red rock butte landscape can just be seen in the background through the dust.
