Twelve Apostles – Great Ocean Road 08/10

Gibsons Beach - Twelve Apostles

I found this image hiding along with a few others of the Great Ocean Road that never saw the light of day.

My original plan was to spend three weeks photographing in and around the Great Ocean Road but typical Victorian weather gave me only 4 day out to the 21 that I was there that is wasn’t bucketing down with rain. Camping in torrential rain is was not on my to do list but instead of moving to another spot I stuck around and towards the end of the three weeks I managed to get busy and this was one of the shots I pulled of Gibsons Beach. For those of you who haven’t been to the Twelve Apostles before there are quite a few vantage points of the sea stacks but this is one looking back away from the main viewing platform down towards Gibsons Beach to the east.

The Great Ocean Road is a fantastic place to photograph and a place I would certainly love to shoot with ideal conditions but sometimes you have to make do with what is on offer.

Hope you like this one.

I was down there for a week earlier this year mate – only got one day without rain too… On the bright side – it was cracking weather for the waterfalls in the Otways… Hopefully doing it again next year

As I said in the email, nice shot! I was also here earlier on in the year, but only got to spend a day at the apostles. Would love to go back for some more apostle action.

Great shot… maybe a suggestion if I may :)

In flexcolor move the levels slider to pull in more highlight detail and then in Photoshop run a shadow highlight over it as well targeting the highlights again. But just watch showing the grain too much. Will give more focus to the sky but pulling in that highlight and will complement the beautiful right hand cloud.

Still a great shot… miss shooting new and exciting locations like this.
