Entry for Great Barrier Reef competition.
Inspired by aerial views and the flow of movement and reef life.
I'm a big fan of planet Earth. Stunning landscapes, amazing biodiversity. The Great Barrier Reef is one of the great wonders of our planet. However, even when trying to stay positive about the world, I cannot think about the reef without thinking about the threat it is under. Even today as I lodge my design entry, the 'powers that be' are discussing more dredging and more industrialisation. This is a perfect time for this theme.

The Australian Government recently applied for and was granted permission to dredge and dump an additional 5 million tonnes of spoil into the Great Barrier Reef. Sanctioned vandalism that breaks my heart.

Looking forward to seeing some pictures of your finished creation, Marie! Many thanks and I'm glad you like the design. :)
Thank you for putting this up for sale! Summer caftan anyone?
Thank you, Julie. :) Glad you like it!
Beautiful, I love the name it is perfect!
Thank you, Ottomanbrim! :)
Thank you, Kelly! :)
Thank you, Rebel, Su and Rhonda. Thanks for taking the time to check out my design and to read the additional comments. I *do* hope that this contest and celebration of the reef does draw some attention to the plight of the reef. Many, MANY ppl are working hard, fighting to protect it and in turn the life that it protects and sustains. Ansel Adams once said 'It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment.' The beauty is many people *are* fighting to save the environment. I just wish we didn't have to fight against anyone to save our planet or any part of our Earth, including the reef. <3
There is a lovely aura of beauty and tranquillity in your gorgeous design. Long may the reef survive the depredations of the greedy forces of industry!
"Shimmering shoals" is a great title for your beautiful design! It made me sad to read your extended note as that dredging - and dumping what they dredge back into the reef (why? it makes no sense to just move all the poisons around - except for dollars and cents type of sense...) are so depressing. Maybe this contest will help get some attention on preserving the GBR... Good luck in the contest!
Lovely design, so peaceful and pretty :)
