Eyeline 1000 Noosa Ocean Swim 2012

Hi all

The first event of the 2012 Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival which I attended was the Eyeline 1000 Noosa Ocean Swim. Here are some pics from an enjoyable Friday afternoon:

Admirable ability of this kid to run in his flippers :)

Buying Noosa Tri UN-Edited Pics 2012

Hi all

A quick explanation on purchasing images from my specific galleries of UN-Edited pics from the 2012 Noosa Triathlon. (The largest sample of such a gallery is here: http://smu.gs/SPqO0u.)

I have only uploaded smaller images to my galleries of UN-Edited pics from the 2012 Noosa Tri. This has mainly been for two reasons:
  1. to save time, and also 
  2. to save space on the Photoshelter site http://disci.photoshelter.com.
In addition, the small images uploaded to Smugmug had a watermark applied prior to upload. This means that there are:
  1. no un-watermarked images (in these Smugmug galleries of UN-Edited pics) available for purchase as 'downloads' available from the UN-Edited Smugmug galleries, and 
  2. only small un-watermarked images available from the Photoshelter galleries (when those galleries are opened). 
So, the recommended option for purchasing downloads of un-watermarked pics which are currently in those UN-Edited galleries is as follows:
Please send me an email at disci7 AT gmail dot com, and tell me which image(s) you're interested in. I will then upload a larger, un-watermarked version of the image to the relevant Smugmug gallery. You can then either:
  1. purchase the image through that Smugmug gallery, or alternatively, 
  2. if you'd like me to email the image to you, we can use email to discuss the procedure for doing this.
I hope this clears things up a bit, without me needing to add too much detail to the description at the top of the image galleries.

Thanks for your time.

ExpressiveBikes Inspired Trials Expression Session

Hi all

Last Saturday afternnoon I enjoyed photographing the ExpressiveBikes Inspired Trials Expression Session at RampAttak Indoor Skate Park, Brisbane. The cycling was a variant on a combination of Bike Trials with a tiny bit of BMX, in an indoor skate park setting. Even some Mountian Bikes with suspension made a showing. Here are some pics:

Allan Phillipson with the nice 360:

Sunday Mail Suncorp Bridge to Brisbane Fun Run 2012

Hi all

Last Sunday morning I enjoyed a quick hour of snapping pics at the Sunday Mail Suncorp Bridge to Brisbane Fun Run. I was happy just to capture the end of the main 10k race. Thanks to everyone who either sent a smile towards the camera or who were obviously putting a big effort in. Some pics:

One of my favourites - nice romantic perspective on this happy couple (who had already run / walked 9 kilometres!):

2012 Mooloolaba Men's & Women's ITU Triathlon World Cup Events; Sunshine Coast, Australia

Hi all

Now to photos from the 2012 Mooloolaba Men's ITU Triathlon World Cup & the 2012 Mooloolaba Women's ITU Triathlon World Cup; Sunshine Coast, Australia.

First, the 2012 Mooloolaba Men's ITU Triathlon World Cup

Jimmy Seear showed inspirational aggression in the swim and bike legs, and then a strong group incuding Mario Mola, Brad Kahlefeldt, Laurent Vidal, David Hauss and Brendan Sexton moved ahead in the run. Vidal won the sprint, with Mola being the impressive  ~ relatively new name in the group imho. Some pics:

Here's my photo gallery covering the 2012 Mooloolaba Men's ITU Triathon World Cup.


Secondly, the 2012 Women's ITU Triathlon World Cup event

Australian Erin Densham was a sensation. She surprised herself by leading out of the water, and then ran away from a good field on the run. My highlight was hearing the crowd on the rise to Alexandra Headlands giving Erin a loud roar as they saw that, not only was she in the lead on the run, but pulling away from the field. Some pics:
