Western Australia vs Queensland - Cricket under lights at the WACA.

Western Australia vs Queensland – Cricket under lights at the WACA.

The game of cricket has played a major role in my life and I stumbled across it by chance as a child and became enchanted. Since then it’s kept me entertained, kept me company, helped me to meet wonderful people, share stories with others,  given me goosebumps, allowed me to sit under the shade of a tree and relax, helped me to slow down and enjoy the fresh spring and summer air, in places all over the country.  This picture is a day/night game between Queensland and Western Australia, being played under the illumination of the lights at the WACA ground in Perth, Western Australia.  As a teenager, I remember seeing the massive metal framework on the back of a dozen trucks on the day the lights were taken to the ground.  There are six towers, each 70 metres high and cost around $600 per hour to run.  They ensure a balmy evening can be spent enjoying another game.  I love the changing sky in this shot and can remember the breeze wafting through as the sun went down.  Can’t remember who won the game though…
