Photographer's Note

The Great Barrier Reef off the coast of North Queensland, is of course covered in coral. 348,000 square kilometres of it, to be exact, making it the largest living thing on Earth. There are many different species of coral, but they fall into 3 main sub groups: the Hermatypic, Ahermatypic and Perforate. They feed on plankton and small fish. On the day I took this, the sky was very overcast. Usually this will not affect what you see underwater, but I found that the coral colour was not as bright as I remember it.
