As we hit the halfway point of the 2012 Olympic Games, televisions and newspapers are awash with stunning photographs showing human athleticism at its best.

This beach volleyball photo shot by Antonie Robertson on a beach in Dubai may not match the glamour of London’s Horse Guards Parade, but it captures a sporting moment wonderfully.

The fishing pots frame the shot brilliantly, and also give a sense of identity to the fisherman relaxing as the sun goes down.
