Indeed, Peter it is a special photo for me, but more than that Fraser Island is a very very special environment. Thanks for the nomination.

Very nice composition, good photo. LIKE join the group, welcome in the Australia/Oceania Namaste from Nepal

mojtaba gholamrezaey on November 30, 2011

Very beautiful composition!Like! Greetings

Thank you for the comment and the invitation, Sanjay. Both are appreciated. However your 40 photo limit would be unrealistic for me, as I would provide 40 images now and then not be able to participate in the group anymore. Perhaps your group is intended for visitors to Australia, not for Australian photographers??


Ian Stehbens on December 1, 2011

Thank you mojtaba. And it is a very special place.

Warm greetings from Queensland.

No wonder the place is called the gold coast, with all this golden sand... like.

Ian Stehbens on March 13, 2012

Yes indeed, Philippe. On the Gold Coast the silica sand is very white and they rely on the tourists to bring the gold!

Thanks for your appreciation. Warm regards,
