A collection of images of the Great Barrier reef in Queensland.
"We hope the images in this book give an insight into the amazing diversity of life found along the Great Barrier Reef - both above and below the water. The three of us have enjoyed sharing our passion and excitement for the natural world, and in turn we hope to have inspired enthusiasm and a greater awareness of nature in all who view this book. Enjoy"

"I take great delight in that my work gives me an excuse to get out and explore some of the most beautiful and dramatic places in the world. I love the challenge of dealing with all the natural elements and the chance moments that arise that allow me to capture what nature has presented. What is truly rewarding to me is not only discovering the scene in the first place; it's being there to capture it when it all happens.
I felt earlier on with my work that I should study traditional arts, to learn to paint. In reality it is really difficult to find scenes and photograph them with the drama and the lighting that I envision. This is the one thing with my work, it demands that I be there, the location has to exist; the conditions, the lighting, the mood, all have to be right. But to me, in the end, that is half the fun. I love this art form, this medium, the challenge of deeply involving myself with natural world and capturing it on film. That chance moment of drama, life and inspiration. My work starts in my mind as an idea, and then I have to search for it and discover it, experience it and be a part of it." Rick Steininger
