Fotoeins Friday: Otago rugby, Dunedin North Ground

28 July 2012.

Over the duration of a year-long journey around the world, I’m spending significant time in the southern hemisphere (not unlike five previous years working and living in Chile). The time has also meant I’ve come to learn about cricket and rugby, which are important to Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. I was introduced to rugby league years ago, but I prefer rugby union, especially after having watched on television games during the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

On foot north from Dunedin CBD centre to Baldwin Street, I pass by the city’s North Ground, home to the Alhambra-Union Rugby Football Club. I stop to watch one of the Club’s junior sides, Colts, in an afternoon rugby game in progress where this “line-out” takes place.


During my year-long RTW, I made this photo on 28 July 2012 with the Canon 450D, 50-prime, and the following settings: 1/250-sec, f/5, ISO100, and 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-9ZA.
