12 Apostles
Lens: 18-55 WR Camera: K-7 Photo Location: Greta Ocean Road 
Posted By: Bruce Clark, 02-03-2014, 12:43 AM

A series of shots in and around a spectacular ocean rock formation known as the 12 Apostles. Located on the Great Ocean Road new the town of Port Campbell, these structures were named on account of the group of significant rock stacks in the region. There are not 12 there now as the ocean is constantly eroding them. In fact one structure known as "London Bridge" lost it's span several years ago
and one of the Apostles collapsed very recently.

One of the many gorges cut out of the limestone rock by the relentless pounding of the Southern Ocean.

This structure is known as the Razor Back.

Leading on to the main lookout, one can see the throng of visitors. Literally thousands of people visit this every day. Being a Public Holiday, the crowds was somewhat greater than normal.

Some of the remaining structures looking west into the afternoon sun. I believe the small rock in the sea was the pillar that recently collapsed.

Looking east along the coast, if you look closely you can see some people walking along the beach and one of the recent rock falls.

A closer view of the above two stacks.

Apostles come and then they collapse into this Eternal Ocean.
Looking at such landscape, there's a wish to be there on the shore.

if it wasn't for the ocean these could be taken in our deserts. Sandstone and erosion make for great photos Bruce and you got some great ones here.
