[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Twelve Apostles have eroded from the soft sandstone ledge by the Great Southern Ocean (next stop - Antartica). There is some debate as to whether they are or ever were 12 (most guide books suggest there used to be more, but they have fallen [the reamins of one is visible in the fg], though the Park itself claims there are 12 but they can't be seen from this vantage point).

I found the location to be as remarkable as the pictures I have seen, but the drive was longer and more boring than I would have imagined (so I wasn't able to stay for the evening light as I had hoped). Still, I am glad I went.

Hello Mike,
I'm glad you went there too.. It is a fantastic place, you
composed it very well, great colors and POV.. Well done


The other day I saw this very view shot by another member of TN, Mike.
Honestly, your image is far superior in terms of colours, contrast and details.
That strip of red beach under the cliffs is really enticing.
Thanks and regards.

Hello Mike !
Wow, what an awesome landscape ! Rock, sand and water, se beautifully disposed in front of you ! I specially like those rocks sticking out of the water, or the shape of the cliffs, and the waves on the water look great too. Composition and POV are splendid, nice natural colors, and I also like the slightly misty atmosphere. Very well done !

Hi Mike,

The different shapes of the rock formations are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the twelve apostles. The different tints of colors of the scnery are enhanced by the quality of the light. have a nice dya.
