Sunset Over The Great Barrier Reef

By Nick_w      
This is a very old photo. When I first started taken photos I had a Nikon F70 (I then put it away for 10 years before starting again at the end of last year).

This was taken on honeymoon in 1997, returning from a trip to Lady Elliot Island on the Great Barrier Reef to Hervey Bay. What a spectacular location!

When I started again I dug out some old slides and scanned them in, this is the only one I managed to get any decent results from.

This was from the aircraft window at sunset. I wish I could have had a histogran view then and I might have got some more shadow detail.

Camera Nikon F70, Sigma 28-200, Fuji Sensia

All other details have long since been forgotten.

Thanks Paul, this was always a favorite shot from when I last dabbled in photography. It was rewarding to see it come alive again.
