Erosion Of The Apostles

12 Apostles, Port Campbell National Park, Victoria, Australia

The mighty 12 Apostles are a world-recognised icon, located on the Great Ocean Road. These giant rock stacks soar from the swirling waters of the Southern Ocean and are a central feature of the spectacular Port Campbell National Park. The creation of the Apostles began approximately 20 million years ago, when the forces of nature started to attack the soft limestone of the surrounding cliffs. The dramatic and imposing limestone cliffs that form the backdrop to the Apostles tower nearly 70 metres, whilst the tallest of the rock stacks is approximately 45 metres high. On this stormy winters morning I was looking to capture the mood of the day. Ultimately this long exposure image is a little reflective of the power that has helped create the spectacle that is the Apostles today.
