A vault post!
Yes, I’m house-bound -and I have a small cold so I’m keeping my distance from Levi -which is hard to do. So here is an image from my golden vault. The S.S Dicky at Dawn.
– Canon 50D
– ISO 100, f9, 2.5 Seconds, 13mm.
– Sigma 10-20mm f4/5.6 lens.
– Contrast and Saturation in Lightroom 3.0.
I spend too much time on flickr -maybe that’s a good thing. I have 1000’s of contacts world-wide, I always come across a lot of good images -let me share some with you. I’ll try make this a regular thing.
Click below for an image from a good friend and fellow Brisbane based photographer. David is always keen to shoot, he takes time out to support others, and he’s an all round nice guy, decent photographer too 😉
About the S.S Dicky
The skeletal wreck of the S.S. Dicky, forced onshore during heavy seas in 1893, can
still be seen at Dicky Beach, which is one of a handful of Australian beaches with its
S.S. Dicky, carrying 11 crew and 40 tonnes of sand, was forced onto the beach during heavy seas in 1893. Attempts to refloat the ship were unsuccessful. A memorial stands in the park at Dicky Beach near the caravan park. A female passenger on board "Queen of Colonies" died as the ship was sailing into Moreton Bay in 1863. It was decided to bury her on Cape Moreton but the burial party was marooned by a storm and washed up on the rocks at Moffat Head. A plaque has been erected at Moffat Headland.
