In 1935, the SS Maheno drifted ashore on the coast of Fraser Island during a strong cyclone while being towed from Melbourne to Japan to be pulled apart for scrap metal. 75 years later it is one impressive piece of scrap metal, and also one of the main tourist attractions along the east coast of Fraser Island along 75 Mile Beach.
The light on this particular morning was brilliant, illuminating the left side of rusting ship perfectly, without being too harsh. Nobody else was around. The tide was out just enough to expose a lot of the ship, but also in enough to create the leading line I had in mind. There were low clouds and high whispy clouds both catching the soft warm light. This was one of those times when you’re out shooting photographs and you just know that you’re going to come home with something satisfying. The conditions couldn’t have been much better.
