@ National Geographic Society 14 Water, Rushing to Catch the Tide, Cascades from the Reef's Outer Edge These visitors gather coral on Wistari, one of the reefs where the Queensland government permits collecting. Tide is unusually low; the author was able to land here only twice in six weeks. Waterfalls along the entire reef edge fill the air with continuous roar. A ten-foot coral boulder (extreme upper right), washed up by storm, breaks the flat monotony. The Tropic of Capricorn cuts between Wistari and wooded Heron Island (center).
