The Twelve Apostles

Port Cambpell National Oark, The Great Ocean Road, Shipwreck Coast, Victoria, Australia

Taken at the famous Twelve Apostles (or 'Sow and Piglets), on the Great Ocean Road. I'm sure you've all seen/heard of these landmarks, this is my take on it. Unfortunately the sun was behind the clouds so any particularly dramatic lighting was non existant, but I had to make the best of what there was since we had travelled almost 3 hours to get there. A polariser and filter was used to bring the photo down a few stops to slow the shutter speed, to achieve the soft effect of the waves lapping on the beach.

This photo was taken just a few days before one of the apostles collapsed, the closest one on the left.

beautiful shot. Do you mind if I used this picture for my natural environments class? We have to post up a picture of a place that we think is a natural environment. Wanted to check if it's ok with you. :)
