Whitsundays’ blue is like no other colour on earth [gallery]

When I was little I wanted to be an artist. I wanted to have a palette of colour and a blank canvas so I could slap down emotions in rich patinas that would last forever. I wanted to shout happiness using orange and yellow, and I wanted to shush the world with angry daubs of grey.

Blue was never a colour I really liked… until my first trip to the Whitsundays when it wrapped my soul in a soaring colour wheel of cyans, Pacific teals and bruised evening hues. It’s not bad having the blues when they look like this.
