9th place
THE SUBJECT: An expert wakeboarder hangs inverted mid-air during a cartwheel manoeuvre. THE LOCATION: This sports photograph was shot at Stoney Creek Holiday Park, Telegraph Point, NSW, Australia during a practice session in the glorious light of a late spring afternoon. THE MAKING OF 'Fresh Water Inversion': Believe it or not I left home late in the afternoon to buy some luscious Aussie prawns for dinner and because the mobile 'Fisho' was not at his usual spot I ended up at the waterski park
