Loch Ard Gorge mounted print

Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia. Nikon D40X, 18-50. “The gorge is named after the clipper ship Loch Ard, which ran aground on nearby Muttonbird Island on 1 June 1878 approaching the end of a three-month journey from England to Melbourne. Of the the fifty-one passengers and crew, only two survived: Tom Pearce, a ship’s apprentice, and Eva Carmichael, an Irishwoman immigrating with her family, both of whom were 18 years of age. According to memorials at the site, Pearce was washed ashore, and rescued Carmichael from the water after hearing her cries for help. Pearce then proceeded to climb out of the gorge to raise the alarm to local pastoralists who immediately set into plan a rescue attempt.” (Wikipedia).
