Farewell SS Dicky

I am saddened by apparent plans to remove the remains of the SS Dicky wreck from Dicky Beach near Caloundra.

I do not have any association with the wreck other than I’ve found it to be a wonderful photographic subject, so my reasons for lamenting its removal are purely selfish, of course! I also understand and accept that there are safety issues to consider.

Having been on the Sunshine Coast for business reasons a couple of days ago, I decided to pop by the wreck for what might be my last opportunity to photograph it.
