Photographer's Note

I took this photo on my birthday 2 years ago. This is Long Reef at low tide, near where I grew up. My earliest memories are of grandpa walking here with me on the Reef, picking oysters. It felt like we were walking on the moon. This beautiful, isolated spot was just so untouched. To the right just out of the frame, is where I saw my first shark whilst I was surfing near the bombora. Locals still call that surf spot The Butterbox.
