The town of Eucla in Western Australia is home to this stunning old wharf. I was travelling the Nullarbor from South Australia and just after crossing the border I experienced this, my first Western Australian beach…

It was breathtaking. I was exploring the Old Telegraph Station in the sand dunes and decided to keep trekking to see what was on the other side of them.

The moment I hit the top and spotted the old jetty lit up by the contrast between the water, sand and sky I knew right away it was a scene that needed capturing.

Hopefully I have given it the justice it deserves so others can experience the beauty too.

I used a Canon 600D; F Stop of 14; Shutter Speed of 1/200.
