Great Barrier Reef

Great Barrier Reef
On our last day in Port Douglas and before traveling to Brisbane we went snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef. We took a catamaran cruise out of Port Douglas to Low Island and snorkeled off the island. I rented a small underwater camera and though it was difficult to operate and did not keep its charge long (lesson learned: don't rent the cameras they have on the boat), we did manage to get some decent photos of the coral and the fish. I have not identified either fish or coral, but the snorkeling was one of the high points of the trip. Low Island is part of the inner reef and has not been seriously affected by the bleaching that is destroying much of the outer reef.

Wow, a nice fish!
Looking at the blog, I have to say I like shot 39 most of the underwater ones. The fish in there may be less showy patterned, but the dynamic pose of it, the colours of the coral and the light are such you don't notice anything about the particles in the water and the iso. It is just a dream in gold with sort of a perspective sucking one in.

Sweet comment. Had the same experience with a Nikonos in 1965 but today I cherish the pea soup that resulted from somewhere in the Indian Ocean. Will try to find the name of the actor.
I see you already got the identification of it, Butterflyfish, sorry Ron, I was too slow.

A great underwater shot, Ron. The coral bleaching from warming oceans is a real concern.

Removing the noise, for one.... Balancing out the high/lowlights....

Not sure how to do either. I do very little editing of my photos.
