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.
