Heart Reef

Hardy Reef in the Great Barrier Reef it a heart-shaped mini atoll located about 100 km (60 mi) off the coast of Queensland and the Whitsunday Islands in northeastern Australia. The Great Barrier Reef stretches along the Australian continental shelf in the Coral Sea and is the largest living structure on earth with a length of 2000 km (1600 mi), and can even be seen from space.
Flying over Hardy Reef is a truly unique experience. The varying water colors and shapes of the coral reefs have fascinated me deeply and helped me to better understand and appreciate this unique environment and the fragility of this ecosystem.
