'The 'Finest' of Sands' Australia, Whitsunday Islands, Whitehaven Beach

This shot is of Whitehaven Sands Beach. This could be the whitest beach I’ve ever seen. The sand is some of the finest in the world having been created through various volcanic thermal activities millions of years ago. The sand is like flour. When you walk on it it crunches beneath your feet. It becomes so white because the water is able to strip all other material from the fine sand and all that is left is a pearl white sand that looks surreal. The sand is so fine that in fact jewelers from around the world use the sand to polish their stones. NASA even used the sand in its Hubble Telescope. It’s absolutely beautiful to see. <br />

TIP – To really enhance the colors of your photo you really need to learn how to use Photoshop’s hue/saturation tool. Some people prefer curves using the RGB and the individual Red Green and Blues but I find that using a eye dropper tool is highly effective. Sometimes your camera doesn’t always capture the colors as your eyes see it. If you take the eye dropper and click on a particular color, for instance the blue in the sky and change the hue dail it will often come much closer to what you eye experienced as opposed to what the cameras sensor records.

I’m traveling the world right now. I’m currently in Australia, in Darwin checking out the outback. If you’d like to tag along with me pleas check out my HDR travel blog at www.lostmanproject.com as I will try and post photos daily of my experiences.
