Whenever I am out my camera at the golden hour. That’s around sunrise or sunset. It always pays to be aware of what is going on behind you. I was obviously there to capture the Three Sisters but the above sky would have been missed if I hadn’t take a second to turn around and look behind me.
Originally known as London Bridge this natural arch is one of the many tourist attractions along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. Sadly in January 1990 the arch closest to the shoreline (note the huge gap) collapsed so unexpectedly that two tourists were stranded on the outer part and had to be rescued by helicopter. To give you an idea of scale, the gap between London Arch and the shoreline to the left is approximately 100 feet.
The Great Otway National Park just off the Great Ocean Road in Australia has a huge range of landscapes and thick vegetation. It wasn’t till I came to this diverse country that I got to properly appreciate boardwalks such as this one, winding its way around a small section of the huge ferns in this temperate rainforest.
One of the oldest vineyards in Australia is Best’s. For over 140 years, they have been producing wine in the Great Western wine region of Victoria. As part of a tour of the Great Ocean Road and the Grampians National Park, we stopped at Best’s for a guided tour and wine tasting. This photograph was taken in the shop. The huge barrels in underground cellars were a little more difficult to get photographs of due to the low light.
