laurenepbath Today I photographed 7 different athletes in their chosen sports! I'm still working through my shots from yesterday and today but it was such an amazing two days with inspiring people all competing in the Special Olympics National Games. This is my golfer, Darren Gibson. @Song2014_Melbourne #Song2014 9h

laurenepbath Sharon Morse shows me how to really play tennis, this was shot at a shutter speed of 1/2000 and I still didn't freeze the motion in the tennis ball. Sharon is one of many Australian's who will be competing in the Special Olympics National Games this year. @Song2014_Melbourne #Song2014 #CompeteWithPride 16h

laurenepbath Who wishes they could wake up to this view in the morning? Thredbo resort, New South Wales. @visitnsw #NewSouthWales 2d

laurenepbath I don't even know what this is called but basically a whole bunch of crazy skiers came down the hill in the dark with red flares and then they let off fireworks. All a part of the fun at Thredbo! I took this photo from my balcony. @visitnsw #NewSouthWales 2d

laurenepbath There's nothing better than being in the clouds looking down a snowy mountain at sunrise. I'm just glad that I didn't have to ski down this beast, apparently it's only a blue run! Haha. @visitnsw #newsouthwales 2d

laurenepbath Okay, only because a bunch of people asked, here's a shot of me skiing today! Promise I'm back to landscapes and sunrises tomorrow. Haha. Only the 5th time I've ever strapped skis to my feet and I almost have the parallel turn down pat, know how to use my poles and can balance properly on turns. I even did another green run, "Walkabout". Get to the New South Wales ski fields and give it a go if you haven't already, it's so much fun! @visitnsw #NewSouthWales 2d

laurenepbath I have to admit that I've been pretty selfish with my shooting on the New South Wales snow fields, sticking to mountain vistas at sunrise. Haha. What do you guys want to see? I've got one more morning tomorrow and I'm going to try and squeeze in another ski lesson and some more photography too. Promise I'll try and shoot your requests. It's truly beautiful out here. @VisitNSW #NewSouthWales 3d

laurenepbath Today I hit Thredbo and started my day at the top of the Kosciuszko express chair lift. What a beautiful sunrise with plenty of fast moving clouds. I then skied for THREE HOURS and even tried one of the green runs. Who has skied here? I did the "Walkabout" run. Considering it was only my 4th time on skies I'm feeling great. I expect to be very sore tomorrow. Haha. @visitnsw #NewSouthWales 3d

laurenepbath Good morning!! It's a crisp and beautiful morning and I'm hitting the slopes today. I'll have a quick refresher lesson then hit the bunny slopes and maybe attempt a few green runs. Very exciting. And this afternoon I might even edit the beautiful sunrise shots I just took. @VisitNSW #NewSouthWales 4d

laurenepbath One of my favorites from this morning, the sun rising over the mountains at Perisher. Really keen for a full day of skiing tomorrow, I've already got my gear organized and I'll be out early. @VisitNSW #NewSouthWales 4d

laurenepbath This morning on the slopes of Perisher! It was so crisp and beautiful this high up. @visitnsw #NewSouthWales 5d

laurenepbath Have you ever photographed the sunrise from on top of the world? This is what it looks like. I was more or less even with the clouds and the light was penetrating! I literally haven't touched this photo. Perisher is really really really beautiful! @visitnsw #NewSouthWales 5d

laurenepbath This afternoon I went chasing light and lucked out with some sweet rays over the chair lift. I spent about an hour and a half scouting locations on the back of a skidoo which was absolutely exhilarating! I swear we were doing 100km/hour. We also had another dump of snow, I'm looking forward to more skiing tomorrow. @visitnsw #NewSouthWales 5d

laurenepbath OMG! I just went skiing for only the third time in my life and attempted the V8 out here at Perisher. (My first ski run BY MYSELF!) To celebrate I'm posting a rare selfie! I'm heading out shooting this afternoon, who knows the area? Any recommendations for landscape photography? It's quite cloudy today. @visitnsw #NewSouthWales 6d

laurenepbath A dream come true! I don't know who remembers how excited I was at the start of this year when I skied for the first time? Well I set plans in motion to test out the Aussie ski fields and with all the snow we've been having - here I am! I arrived at Perisher this afternoon and tomorrow morning I've got a private lesson. Hopefully I kick butt and I'll be a pro by the end of tomorrow. Haha. @visitnsw #NewSouthWales 6d

laurenepbath Bucket List Objective - Ride a horse on the beach. Well and truly ticked off! I even had a trot but wasn't keen on the canter with my camera around my neck! Haha. @visitnoosa #visitnoosa 7d

laurenepbath Good morning! I love it when people conveniently cast great silhouettes at sunset. Haha. Shot at Main Beach Noosa. @visitnoosa #visitnoosa 7d
