Chasing Light | Low Isles | Ocean Photography


The encounter with this stunning creature was well over half an hour, most of which was spent with me swimming like crazy to get 50 meters or so in front of the turtle.


Low Isles Hawksbill Turtle

I took it last year at the Low Isles, a 40 minute trip out from Port Douglas. I’d had the image in my head for a couple of years and was waiting for the right light and subject. This 30ish year old Hawksbill Turtle granted me the pleasure of capturing it in gorgeous low key backlight sunlight on a nice clear afternoon. 

The encounter with this stunning creature was well over half an hour, most of which was spent with me swimming like crazy to get 50 meters or so in front of the turtle. I wanted to find a patch of coral that would create a pleasing frame & natural vignette. Not an easy task when you’re underwater and turtles aren’t as easily coerced as a dog wanting a treat. The moment I managed to get “the shot” I said goodbye to my new friend and took a minute or two bobbing around in the ocean on my back to catch my breath.
