Green Island and Great Barrier Reef

Green Island, accessible by catamaran, is a popular destination for visitors to Australia's world-famous Great Barrier Reef. The island, which is a national park, features a rainforest boardwalk, beaches and other attractions. The underwater photo was taken from a "semi-submersible" boat, and there are more reef photos from my 2001 trip linked below. The photo was digitally enhanced to improve contrast and restore some of the red color that is normally lost under water.
