SkyWatch Friday: Reef Sky

While floating about, with the occasional duck dive for luck, on the reef I tended to just look downwards towards the reef floor – understandably given the amount of life really.
At one point I looked up and was greeted by this seen – the sea, the thin strip of MacKay Reef and the sky.   The sky was still overcast (it was that sort of holiday!) but the combination of shape and colour caught my eye.  I really like the colour in the water, the dark and the light showing the split between reef and sand.
This is the last picture in my “reef week” special.  Hope you enjoyed them.
You can find more skies from around the world at SkyWatch Friday.
You can find the latest post to my other blog by clicking on the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the screen.
Enjoy the skies.

The thin reef line really points out the contrasts of colour and texture in sky and water. Nice one, Stewart!

Beautiful shot, Stewart!!
Yes, the rain stopped about 2 weeks ago. It's been sunshine & blue skies the entire time I've had the flu!! I'm looking forward to being well enough to get out a bit more with my camera.
