Most people go to the beach to soak up the sun, read a good book, hit the waves, and simply enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. For others though, the beach is seen as a treasure trove just waiting to be discovered. If you have a metal detector you can comb the beach for hours, waiting to hear the beep-beep, of something ready to be unearthed. Sometimes you will find something, but more often than not you will come up empty-handed. For one family who was out for a stroll, they would pick up something astonishing.
Meet Tonya And Kym
For these two Australian photographers, they never expected to happen upon anything of interest on a beach in Western Australia. They would spend most of their time flying to far-flung places in the world to capture beautiful shots of nature and animals.
When they decided to go out for a simple walk in their home province though, they would find something worth a second look. What appeared to be something quite old, would contain a story that they had to uncover.
Driving out to beaches in Australia is pretty normal. You have a vehicle with 4-wheel drive for those tough to reach places, and in this case, sandy situations. Kym and Tonya knew they wanted to get some shooting done, which meant driving over some very sandy patches of their favorite local spot.
They never expected that the sand would sink under the wheels of their vehicles and get stuck. Once they realized there would be no moving, and that they would need someone to come and help them they decided to go for a walk along the shoreline. It was there that they would make a discovery.
