A lovely day for beach volleyball


Well I have to admit I'm probably not particularly well known for my sports photography.I don't think the Olympic Committee is going to be calling any time soon but the week before last I had an absolute blast covering the National Indigenous Tertiary Education Student Games (NITESG) for James Cook University.

I photographed the students playing netball, basketball, touch football and this very photogenic sport - beach volleyball. It was great to be down on the beautiful Cairns Esplanade with sensational blue skies above and balmy temperatures - at least for the competitors who had come up from down south.

It's great to see young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander university students coming together and showing their sporting prowess while having a really good time. Needless to say JCU Cairns won the event. :) Hey I'm allowed to be biased.
