Portrait photographer, Karen Stewart, gets sand between her toes at Queensland’s Rainbow Beach.
“I have always had a thirst to be near the beach. Recently I moved to the Rainbow Beach area and wanted to explore my surroundings.
I find the beach so inspirational, I love watching the way the ocean moves, the way it sounds, the salty air you can smell and taste.
I believe that a photograph does not need to be of something spectacular, to be spectacular.”
