The flora and fauna of the Great Barrier Reef and the Coral Sea are a photographer’s dream.

A small turtle rests on the sea floor in about 85 feet of water as a diver hovers over the reef.

Gregory Hills

Greg Hills, Australian-born photographer and now a resident of our area, visited the Great Barrier Reef and the Coral Sea this past winter – something he’s wanted to do for years. He took a dive vessel out of Cairns, Australia and visited several reefs in the Great Barrier Reef then dived the depths of the Coral Sea. In this photo-essay, he shares with us the wonders he photographed on his visit.
