Photographer Camilla Stoddart in World Open final

Camilla Stoddart, a sports/action photographer whose work often features on this blog, is a finalist in the 2012 World Open Of Photography. Some incredible shots from everyone in this contest, but the Scotswoman's shots always speak to me. Follow the links below to her entries, they're non-downloadable so can't put them here.

My favourite is this MTB shot taken at St Bathans in New Zealand. It shows Kiwi Kelly McGarry on what looks like a vertical slope down into an old gold mine.

But this shot of Mitch Coll base-jumping - flying really - is also hard to stop looking at. I've been reading a lot about Base Jumping lately, could be time for another documentary I think. Fascinates me how they just don't seem to be afraid at all.

The World Open winners will be announced on November 30th.
