Gold Coast Spit – Queensland – Australia

Canon EOS 450D – Canon EF-S Lens 15-85mm

The Ghost Surfer ………. can you see him ……… he is there i promise :-)

This is the Sand Pumping Jetty at The Spit on the Gold Coast. Early morning sunrise shoot with a couple of good mates, but an uninspiring sky presented itself to us. So i thought this would look good with a little B&W Contrast. There was enough stormy cloud to give this image a little drama, hence the lack of colour and sunlight.

BTW …… he is there …….. keep looking :-)
