Sitting alone and exposed to the elements of Fraser Island’s Seventy-Five mile beach this shipwreck has weathered the harshness of the Pacific Ocean for many many years.

Still dark I set up with a crisp westerly blowing and an amazing strand of wispy cloud moving in ever so slowly from the south. My camera’s have seen this iconic location on a number of different occasions and watched many a light show unfold before them but none like the one on this particular morning. I had pictured this shot for a number of years and finally everything fell into place, the sky lit up with stunning pink and purple hues and all I had to do is press the shutter. This is truly a shot I will remember for years to come.
