Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef system, and often considered one of the seven natural wonders. While diving or snorkeling on the reef is an amazing and unforgettable experience, a helicopter tour over the reef offers panoramic views that have to be seen to be believed. The reef is simply breathtaking from the air, a seascape unmatched in beauty to any other on Earth, and an absolute paradise for nature lovers.
Allowing ourselves a week for the best chance of good weather, we grew increasingly anxious as each gloomy day was followed by another. On our final day, and only hours before we were due to fly home, the skies cleared nearing low tide, finally presenting us with ideal photography conditions; And wow did the reef take our breath away! Brilliant patterns of contrasting deep blues and bright greens, and as if by divine creation, sitting in its own little lagoon, the beautiful Heart Reef. Leaning out of the helicopter with its doors removed, camera in hand, our own hearts were pounding with the thrill of the whole experience. Incredible moments and images we’ll never forget.
