Diving Down Under, literally...

Diving in Australia
"Australia is about as far away as you can get. I like that." ~ Andre Benjamin

25 photos=long load time. Be please patient.
 
I love that mountain-top runway...





























There have been massive floods in Australia that have washed pollutants and fresh water into the in-shore Great Barrier Reef.  Coral is extremely vulnerable to fresh water. The deep offshore reefs seem to be doing well, so keep your dive schedules on target.

Oh my goodness!! If these aren't stunning photographs, then "stunning" isn't a word. I love the colors, Patty! I'm soooo jealous (I know; I know. I shouldn't be...but I've always wanted to go to Australia. Maybe one day!!) These are gorgeous!!!
Hugs,
J.
