Artist's description:

Winx - The Morning after her historic Third consecutive Cox Plate Victory captured at Altona Beach with track rider Ben Cadden.

I wanted to capture an image of Winx that was different. An image that no one else had, something unique and a story telling shot. An image that would be iconic of the Champion for years to come.

Altona is sometimes a tricky beach. Lots of shallow water, lots of sand banks and difficult to ascertain sometimes what’s in between. I knew the “money shot” was Winx in the water with the city skyline behind her. The only way to adequately capture this is to be deep in the water, way past where the horses do their morning recovery.

For a 5 foot nothing, some would say, vertically challenged, photographer, this can be fraught with danger. Once you pass the horses, and are off the sand bank, the water becomes deep very, very quickly as I discovered. I stood on tiptoes for most of the shoot, trying to keep my cameras dry and steady. As Winx walked past me with the sky behind, I knew my "risky" shot had been worth it.
