Coloured Sands on Fraser Island


One cannot write about Fraser Island and not mention the sand. To most people the Fraser Island is instantly associated with the 75km long, pristine beach on the Eastern side of the island. In fact lets not forget Fraser Island is the biggest sand island in the world. However, there is more to the sand than just the beach.

Erosion, and endless layers of varied coloured sand have created spectacular sand formations in many places along the beach. Best known of these are Pinnacles and Cathedrals. The Pinnacles, expose rich textures and shapes resulting from nature’s sculpting elements: wind and water and are truly one of Fraser Islands natural wonders. more

Photographer captures Maheno Shipwreck on Fraser Island


Here we see a woman photographer taking shots of the S.S. Maheno shipwreck. The rich colours and textures of the old rusted through ship provide many interesting photo opportunities. This lady photographer and many others including me ignore the 3m safety warning zone to get the optimum view or angle on some piece of the Meheno. Rust makes for excellent photography as the metal oxides can vary in colour from light yellow to deep browns within small space. In addition the rust get the bubbled up texture and layering adding to the complexity of visual appeal to the photographer.

The girl photographer in this capture is apparently a pro for an Australian magazine enjoying her holidays on Fraser Island.
