Great Barrier Reef
Over the last few years that I've been living n Brisbane I've made it up to the Great Barrier Reef a couple of times. In May 2010 I went out on the Mike Ball Spoilsport and again, as a last minute alternative to a southern barrier reef trip which was cancelled, in September 2011. In this latter trip I was pleased to have five of my images reach the shortlisted top 100 images in the Underwater Festival that took place over 10 days throughout Australasia in September 2011. One of the most memorable dives was one where my buddy and I went the opposite way to the masses on Cod Hole and spent an hour with a few huge Potato Code, which give the dive its name. They were so close that with my 10.5 mm fish eye lens the cod were slightly distorted!
