'One of the greatest natural wonders of the world' Sir David Attenborough

It's hard to capture the enormity of Montgomery Reef so the photo is not terrific.

We were fortunate to have a tide drop of over 11 metres so the reef was visible and high out of the water. It is the world's largest inshore reef at over 400 sq km (the figures in the link below are incorrect even though the pics are good). As the tide drops the sea water rushes out of the lagoon and cascades down over the reef at an incredible rate. Sea turtles, manta rays, sharks and birdlife are attracted to the turbulent waters.

This link has good overhead photos to give context: https://www.behance.net/gallery/114914299/The-Montgomery-Reef-A-Natural-Wonder

Great shot and textures, love the water running down. Thanks for the link, it sure is amazing!

It must be fabulous to see. Your narrative describes it nicely.

T white splash running over the rock creates a leading line and makes the picture

Even if you think the photo is "not terrific", think it is a great photo showing the magnificent flow of the water. Great shot.
