At the beach
Fraser Island is a wonderful place. The island, completely made of sand, has lots of vegetation, forests, fresh water lakes and gorgeous beaches. The photo shows a scene at 90-mile beach, a well visited place among tourists. We've been on Fraser Island on our Australia trip in 2007 and spent some days there. Exploring the island (with a guided tour) was both interesting and fun. We enjoyed the scenery a lot.
If you do a tour on that island you will definitely drive to 90-mile beach. The tour buses and jeeps all drive right on the sand besides the surf. You will see the famous Maheno shipwreck (I post an image some day) and walk up a fresh water river that runs out of the forests into the sea.
I took the photo while we walked around the beach when we did a short stop. The colors and light were amazing. I took some shots of the beach but this image is the best I think. I always prefer the portrait format for landscape shots, this gives an additional contrast. Especially here you have the shades of blue and the layers of sky, water and beach that assemble to a fine result. I like this image, it just looks so "holiday"-like. It always brings back good memories.
