photographer peter meyer
Peter Meyer, photographer extraordinaire, saved my recent holiday on Fraser Island. In what was almost a week of non-stop cyclonic rain conditions, it was incredibly difficult to imagine what the island could look like when the skies were clear. Thankfully, the resort where I was staying displayed Peter's photos. And the general store sold his book filled with beautiful images of Fraser Island. What a spectacularly beautiful place it was. And it's hard to believe that Peter only took his first photo six years ago. Truly!
