Here is my first ever attempt at the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge. These are my photo’s ‘From Above’, taken of the Great Barrier Reef during a helicopter tour. It was one of the best experiences of my life, and one of the most magical things I have ever seen. The reef is just as beautiful from the sky as it is underwater.
The dark blue through the centre of this shot is an ancient river which ran through this area when the reef was mountains, millions of year ago.
I like this shot because you can see the curve of the earth. Out on the reef you feel a million miles from anywhere.
In the centre of this photo is the heart reef, the most photographed location in the entire Great Barrier Reef. It is a truly amazing natural occurrence.
