The hollow shell of the SS Dicky at Caloundra on Queensland’s sunshine coast. Shot with my Nikon D90, Nikor 18-200mm lens, ND400 Filter.. I was so glad to get this shot. I have seen many pics of the SS Dicky, but never from this angle before.
Daily Inspiration in Bi-Colour Beauties Group

The SS Dicky was an iron steamboat which ran aground during heavy seas in 1893. It was re-floated, but again, heavy seas turned the ship about and back onto the sand where it remains to this day. Dicky Beach remains the only recreational beach in the world to be named after a shipwreck. Each year they dig it out of the sand and oil it, to try and preserve it… and then fill the sand back in. Part of it was removed and sent to a museum, as it was posing a risk. But the lifesavers are directly behind it, to make sure it’s safe. The sea is quite rough and I imagine it would be easy to get swept into the steel.
