Turtle Swimming For a Breath
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This photo was taken when a sea turtle - that had been resting on some coral down below - needed to swim to the surface to take a breath of air. A fellow diver accompanied the turtle part of the way - then it got some air & casually swam off. |
I took this photo during a trip to the Great Barrier Reef – staying on a Live-a-Board for a week. The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest coral reef system, composed of roughly 3,000 individual reefs and 900 islands stretching for 2,600 kilometres (1,616 mi) over an area of approximately 344,400 square kilometres (132,974 sq mi). The reef is located in the Coral Sea, off the coast of Queensland in northeast Australia.

Hi Margo. This is a very professional-looking underwater shot, as good as any magazines i have seen. The colours and clarity is what drew me to this composition. TFS. Murray.
It's so cool to swim with turtles... My best remember from Australia actually !
Very lovely photo, thanks for sharing !
