laurenepbath The closest I've ever been to the end of a rainbow and I certainly didn't see any pot of gold! Lol. One of several Barossa Valley latergrams that I want to share. @southaustralia #southaustralia 13h

laurenepbath Shot 12/12 and the final photograph from my Special Olympics National Games project. I'm really proud of my Instagram followers for embracing this series, traditionally portraiture is less popular on this platform. For the equestrian event I photographed Sarah Sherwood who looked totally adorable in her white gloves with her hair beautifully braided. Best of luck in the National Games to everyone that I photographed. @Song2014_Melbourne #Song2014 #CompeteWithPride 24h
  •   georgierd @laurenepbath my sons (with @andrewdenford ) both go to special school in brisbane and are having their sports day next month at UQ. You should come see some amateurs have a go. It's a lot of fun and every child participates. 11h

laurenepbath Alrighty, we're up to number 11 of 12 shots for my Special Olympics series. This is Melinda Knowles who competes in the lesser known sport Bocce. She's been doing it for around 3 years and enjoys that it is a strategic sport. Melinda is a very interesting lady. @Song2014_Melbourne #Song2014 #CompeteWithPride 1d

laurenepbath Good morning! Here is shot 9/12 of the Special Olympians I photographed to raise awareness of @Song2014_Melbourne the National Games.

Hazards of the job. #Song2014 #CompeteWithPride Thanks to those that are getting behind the project, it means a lot to these guys! :) 2d

laurenepbath Special Olympics National Games shot 6/12. Skye Cameron's sport is Basketball and she braved the elements in Melbourne to show us her style at sunrise. You know I can't resist a good silhouette but I hope to post all of the athletes portraits on my Facebook page this week too. @Song2014_Melbourne #Song2014 #CompeteWithPride 2d

  •   fimail70 Great photos - I especially love the swimmer. Rob Regent just left my work at @menslinkcanberra about a month ago to head the ACT section of the Special Olympics (he was a cricket coach there previously) - we miss him but he's doing another very important job where he is. 2d

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 3d

laurenepbath Who wishes they could wake up to this view in the morning? Thredbo resort, New South Wales. @visitnsw #NewSouthWales 4d

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 4d

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 5d

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 5d
