Reef Break

Anchored on the outside edge of this reef in the Coral Sea, I was in between dives and noticed as the tide dropped lower, the reef break was in its prime. From under the waves I found this perspective was much more intriguing, watching the unique end of each break after its long journey across the South Pacific Ocean. Snorkelling along the shallow reef edge where the waves were coming in from the depths, I would duck dive down before the wave broke to capture the frenzied moment before being tumbled through the water like a leaf in a strong breeze.
