    Fantastic interpretation of this apostle. Great treatment to bring up those contrasts..well done.

  • Thanks Sal,
    I stayed overnight in awful shed type accomodation, however I was down on the beach as the sun came up and voila I had the shot. They don’t allow you to climb down the cliff face these days as Health and Safety won’t allow it.
    Two years ago I hung over the edge of the cliffs at The Great Australian Bite, the shots were useless as the perspective didn’t work, the drop was hundreds of feet and the cliffs crumble all the time, I wouldn’t risk it a second time !!

  • Brigitte, The Apostles are on the Victorian coast on the Great Ocean Road, if you kept driving you would hit the South Australian border after a couple of hours.
