For the Aussies and Everyone! FOOTY!

Footy is a fun, action packed and rough game, I'm sure an Aussie can explain the rules better than I. However Locally (In Canada) there is an Ontario Aussie Rules Football League in which my brother-in-law is a player on one of the teams. There is a unique rule in this league and its that you're not allowed more than 8 true Aussies on the pitch per team at any one time. Its just that the Aussies having grown up with the game are just that much better than the locals that the locals would get slaughtered if there were more Aussies.

People always wonder about sports photography and the Pentax system, and even though i don't do it full time i still do a lot of it. Pentax is quite capable, however the right lens, knowing the game and proper skill are what makes it or breaks it. The camera is quite capable if you are!

These were shot with my Sigma 100-300mm F4 and Sigma 1.4x TC,

The second time i photographed the game i took the TC off and ignored action at the far end of the large pitch.

Here is one photo just to get you interested, however you really should check out the full gallery

Do Enjoy! Let me know if you have a favourite photo!
