Photographer's Note

This is one of the beautiful beaches of Coral Bay. Less than 20 metres off this shore lies the magnificent Ningaloo Reef running for 260 kilometres along the coast. The word "Ningaloo" is from Wajarri language meaning "promontory", "deepwater", or "high land jutting into the sea". The Yamatji peoples of the Baiyungu and Yinigudura clans have inhabited the area for over 30,000 years.

On the evening I took this photo, I had snorkelled in this area for 6 hours. It was difficult dragging myself away from the breath-taking variety of corals, the giant clams, colourful tropical fish and turtles that I saw during the day. It was even more incredible to think that all those creatures were happily swimming away in that very same place in the dark whilst I was on land.
