FOR pho­tog­ra­pher Tracy Olive, her back­yard never ceases to in­spire.

Ms Olive said she’s con­stantly dream­ing of what she had seen, and was plan­ning her next op­por­tu­nity to add to th­ese mar­vel­lous ex­pe­ri­ences.

“I took this pho­to­graph on what I must say was one of the most amaz­ing days of my life, you see in my back yard there is this most won­drous place full of mys­te­ri­ous crea­tures and beau­ti­ful peo­ple that cap­ti­vate your heart and soul,” Ms Olive said.

“This is of course a sub-adult hump­back whale, on its an­nual mi­gra­tion and he holds a spe­cial place in my heart be­cause

‘‘ HE SENSED US IN HIS WORLD AND WAS TO OUR DE­LIGHT, CU­RI­OUS TO SEE WHO WAS IN HIS OCEAN WORLD.

he found me and my friends as we were gaz­ing in awe at the beau­ti­ful South­ern Great Bar­rier Reef. “He sensed us in his world and was to our de­light, cu­ri­ous to see who was in his ocean world.

“His great ma­jes­tic form ap­peared out of the blue ocean hues and he flew nearly within our reach. He is on his way home now to his icy feed­ing grounds in the wa­ters that sur­round the Arc­tic.”

Ms Olive said this won­drous place is of course Lady Mus­grave Is­land and it is in all of our beau­ti­ful back­yards.

Lady Mus­grave Is­land is just over 100km away by sea from the port of Glad­stone.
