These action shots are great! The intensity, the ferocity, the movement and the tenacity of these women is simply astounding.

Thanks for sharing these!

@Ti - I really liked them too. AFL is such a macho sport in Aus, so tied up with identity and masculinity, it's incredible to see it growing so much now for women! *popstoyourblog*

As a photographer, I'm enjoying these shots because they capture such intensity. They help me see a little bit more of what it takes to be able to play the sport, as I have never partaken.

@Snowcatcher - Vuong really captures it, definitely makes a difference when the photographer is part of what they're looking at - as with your own biking shots!
