This week’s reader photo was taken by Mitchell in Queensland.

“Flying over Hardy Reef in the Whitsunday’s is one of them experiences that will leave you lost for words.

Hardy reef is located 60kms off Airlie beach, and is best view from sea plane or helicopter. For my flight I decided to dig deep into my pockets and fork out the money for a private charter; this way I had more room and I could shoot with the door off.

 This was my first ever aerial shoot, I had no idea what to expect , and I was a nervous wreck, but once I was up over the reef everything I was worried about seemed to disappear as I was distracted by all the unique patters and beautiful turquoise waters,” he says.
