What's your bucket list?

People have always compiled their 'bucket list' must-do items, often planned for some distant time in the future when they retire, before they die etc.

What would my photography bucket list be? As I concentrate mainly in sports photography, I'd pick two sports that have been close to my heart for many years and bring back fond memories of time spent with my Dad.

1. Shooting the US Masters Golf Tournament. Across all disciplines of sport, most sportsmen and women find golf the most challenging sport - the game where perfection is like a mirage in the desert.  I've been lucky to have been to Augusta during Masters week in 3 different years over 2 decades - even though TV cameras are positioned to present viewers with the best angles to view the golf and the beauty of the course, anyone who has been there when the dogwoods and azaleas are in full bloom, will attest to the fact that "TV doesn't do its beauty justice" - it is undescribably magnificent.

2. All Blacks vs Springboks rugby Test in New Zealand. A Test between these two nations is still the pinnacle of rugby rivalry in the world, with both teams rated #1 and #2 over decades. I've seen images of how beautiful New Zealand is and can just imagine the thrill of watching the All Blacks performing the haka before the Test.

Both these events would combine my love of the Rugby, golf and photography. What are your bucket list items?
