Lady Elliot Island, Great Barrier Reef Queensland, Brisbane Photographer, John Reyment

I was talking about Lady Elliot Island to someone today and my mind went back to the three trips I have made there, oh the memories. Lady Elliot Island offers the visitor so much, there is reef walking, fabulous snorkeling and scuba diving, nature walks, you can even see turtles laying eggs and hatchlings emerging from the sand to find the water. The island is home to hundreds of bird species who nest there.

Lady Elliot Island is easy to get to, you can fly out of Hervey Bay or Bundaberg.

The image above is titled “Storm Coming” and is from a trip I made to the Island in 2005, it won me a Silver Award in the Queensland Australian Institute of Professional Photography Awards that year. “Storm Coming” is today’s Photo of the Day.
