2012 Mooloolaba Triathlon, Swim Bike Run; Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia

Hi all

Last weekend I enjoyed attending the 2012 Mooloolaba Triathlon Festival, which included the main Sunday morning event, the 2012 Mooloolaba Triathlon. Weather permitting, the Swim Leg is in the Coral Sea, so I always find photographing the exit of the swim leg through the surf to be plenty of fun. Here are some pics:

Just like last year, plenty of people smiled or gave a thumbs-up or peace sign for the camera (bless you)
