Visible light has wavelengths from 380 nm to 750 nm. 

Since the speed of light is roughly 300,000,000 meters per second (or 186,000 miles per second), the frequency range is from 400 TeraHertz (400 x 1012) to 790 TeraHertz (790 x 1012).

105 is a frequency typical for a high pitched audio wave.  Only a person with synesthesia would perceive colors from that.

The wavelength is computed from
(speed of light) = (wavelength)*(frequency)

Since you want it in nanometers
3*1017 nm/sec = wavelength*(105/sec)
(3*1017*10-5) nm = wavelength    (divide both sides by 105/sec)

3*1012 nm = wavelength

As noted by Nic7320, this 3000 meter wavelength is way outside the visible range. It is in the low frequency band of the electromagnetic spectrum.
