Jim's pic in running for award

BENDIGO Advertiser photographer Jim Aldersey is in the running for a Cricket Victoria media award.

Aldersey's photo featured on page one of January 31, 2014 caught the eye of the judging panel for the CV photography award.

The awards presentation night is on Wednesday at The Olsen Hotel in South Yarra from 6.30pm.

The intrepid photographer dived into the water at Brennan Park in Flora Hill for a shot of White Hills team-mates Rhys Irwin and Gareth Davies.

Aldersey's shot was taken on the day the Bendigo District Cricket Association ruled the February 1 matches would not be played because of extreme heat forecast for the weekend.

Featured under the heading "Heat Stroke" the pic depicts Davies and Irwin finding a great way to keep cool in a week where the temperature regularly hit 40 or above.

It was a tough week for many, especially for Davies from Wales.
