Heart Reef, Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia
The weather was perfect for some aerial photography, so after a helicopter flight out to the Great Barrier Reef, I was able to experience Heart Reef in the best way possible, from the air. While this reef is quite small, it unmistakably stood out amongst the nearby reefs. The conditions were perfect for capturing this famous Queensland icon.
Heart Reef, in the Great Barrier Reef of the Whitsundays, is a stunning composition of coral that has naturally formed into the shape of a heart. Heart Reef is best experienced from the air by helicopter or seaplane, as visitors are unable to snorkel or dive there due to its protected status.
