||Beyond the pull of gravity
And the noise of our world,
Beyond the demands of everyday life,
We found the sea and so, our freedom.
'Diver in the light', Great Barrier Reef
||And in this place of liberty
We began to dance with nature.
And the locals joined in
Accepting us as part of their world.
Crescent tailed Glass-eyes, Priacanthus hamrur, Great Barrer Reef
||We began to explore.
And through our lens we saw beyond
What our eyes could see alone.
Communities of symbiosis and harmony
In a world as beautiful as it is bizarre.
Pygmy Seahorse, Hippocampus bargibanti, Great Barrier Reef
||What may be viewed as ordinary on land
Becomes exquisite under the sea.
Nudibranch, Ardeadoris egretta, Great Barrier Reef
||Seascapes that defy the imagination and
Lead us deeper into this magical world
'The Mermaid's Palace', Coral Sea
||Where the surface of the sea seems the defining line
Between a world that binds and one that frees.
'Waves over the reef', Coral Sea
||It is here, along our shores, the two worlds unite.
'Along the shoreline', Coral Sea
