While searching through my photos for something completely unrelated, I stumbled across these. These are some of my all-time favourite photographs.
These beautiful fish are Red Emperor’s, some of the best eating fish in the world. These guys were lucky enough to live under the pontoon on Hayman Island though, which is a Marine National Park. No fishing for them. Each day when we got back to the island from working on the boats we would feed them scraps left over from the day, and they would dance like crazy for their supper.
Their vivid colours flashing through the tropical water was truly magical, one of the best parts of living on an island.
How could I pass up on this awesome photo challenge, when I have been in search of the perfect beach my whole life. I moved to an island to be surrounded by beaches, for god’s sake. Thankyou once more to the awesome people who create these challenges and give me a reason to look through and reminisce over old photo’s.
In this case it is Where’s My Backpack providing the challenge today. Sunset at my former island home – Hayman Island, Queensland. Boats on the ocean – Sihanoukville, Cambodia. My final sunset in a wonderful country – Kep, Cambodia
A scattering of shells – Langkowi, Malaysia
Holiday paradise – Busselton, Western Australia
My new beach, my new home – Bunbury, Western Australia
(Couldn’t help but include the last two shots even though they are Instagrammed off my iPhone, amazing what technology can achieve these days!)
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.
