Photographer's Note

This shot is much improved on the last as the exposure was reduced and the contrast levels also adjusted. Thanks for the feedback. These magnificent cliffs and stacks are in the Port Campbell National Park on the spectacular Great Ocean Road .The Twelve Apostles are the remnants from constant erosion of the limestone cliffs of the mainland that began 10–20 million years ago. The stormy Southern Ocean and blasting winds gradually eroded the softer limestone, forming caves in the cliffs. The caves eventually became arches and when they collapsed rock stacks up to 45 metres high were left isolated from the shore.

Sunrise and sunset offer particularly impressive views as the Twelve Apostles change colour from dark and foreboding in shadow to brilliant sandy yellow under a full sun.
A photographers paradise!
