The Twelve Apostles

The Twelve Apostles is a collection of limestone stacks off the shore of the Port Campbell National Park, by the Great Ocean Road in Victoria. I had originally thought about hiring a car and driving along the road just to get a photograph of these stacks until I was told by a guide that I wouldn’t see much having to concentrate on the driving rather than the views on my drive down. So in the end I went on a two day guided tour.

The first tour (which would have seen me photographing this view in the morning as well as a sunset) ended up being cancelled so I had change tours to one that wasn’t as good for the twelve apostles but did mean that I saw more of Victoria. As you can probably tell from the about landscape taken in the mid afternoon, I was shooting directly into the sun. This put the limestone stacks into shadow and meant it was extremely difficult to record a photograph with any sort of detail in it. This was the best I could do in the short time I had there. Next time I visit this area I will now know that the best time of day is early morning.
