This morning we awoke at 4am and packed the camera and lighting gear into the car. 90 minutes later we were at Woody Point in Redcliffe clambering down rocks to the secluded beach that is home to the Gayundah Shipwreck which was beached there deliberately in 1957. The ship itself was a premier warship for the British Navy and was built in 1884 in Newcastle-on-Tyne and sent to Australia to protect us from the Russians.
The old girl may be far from sea-worthy but what she lacks in buoyancy, she certainly makes up for in rustic charm and mystery.
We had the pleasure of shooting the very talented Casey this morning and we hope you will agree that the early start and braving the bitter cold were well worth it.
