This is the End......My Friend by Maxwell Campbell

Currently unavailable for purchase

HMQS Gayundah was a flat-iron gunboat operated by the Queensland Maritime Defence Force and later the Royal Australian Navy (as HMAS Gayundah). She entered service in 1884 and was decommissioned and sold in 1921. She then served as sand and gravel barge for Brisbane Gravel Pty Ltd until 1950, when she was scrapped. In 1958, Gayundah was run aground at Woody Point at Redcliffe, to serve as a breakwater structure……… (Wikipedia)

This was taken at Woody Point, just near Redcliffe QLD where the good ship now rests. A last minute decision to head up the coast for this spot. It was originally planned, but some really ordinary weather set in early which made me think twice about heading up there from the Gold Coast. Glad i did, as i drove up, the weather started to clear. Almost cleared up too much, all the clouds just about disappeared just before sunset, so the big colour didn’t eventuate. Still, i got some great shots away, and i got a taste for the place. Enough of a taste to put it on the return list.
