Tennis, US Open, Grand Slam, Flushing Meadows
'Slam the Light'
The summer light of the four tennis grand slams in Australia, France, England and USA provide an amazing contrast of light and condition, each tournament providing a uniqueness and beauty.
From the harsh Australian summer light of Melbourne, to the spring light reflecting off the clay courts of Roland Garros in Paris, the low and late setting northern summer light casting beautiful long shadows on the lush Wimbledon grass in London and the early autumn soft subtle light of Flushing Meadows in New York.
