The Great Ocean Road is renowned for its amazing mountain hugging road, full of twists and turns.
Unfortunately my budget does not extend to helicopter flights, I opted for a low sea side vantage point looking back at the sweeping bend incorporating a curving bridge crosssing Smythe’s Creek, surrounded by ocean and rugged mountains.
The reflections of the bridge also show the curved roadway.

    Extraordinary work!!

  • Hi John. Thanks for your kind comment. There were so many photo opportunities along this coast, it was hard to choose which way to point the camera.

    Outstanding reflections here!

  • Hi Marion. Thanks for the visit and the Favourite. It was taken along the Great Ocean Road in Australia. Very calm conditions in the valley, but the light was fading fast.
