Twelve Apostles at Dawn

Twelve-Apostles-Early-Morning.jpg

This month we took a short trip to Melbourne and drove down the Great Ocean Road to see the Twelve Apostles. A few people remarked that only the English would holiday to Victoria in the middle of winter. While half of Melbourne flocked to Queensland to chase the sun, we headed the in the opposite direction! The Twelve Apostles are a collection of limestone stacks off the coast of Port Campbell National Park in Victoria. They're called the Twelve Apostles but in reality there are only eight left. The ninth collapsed in July 2005 and it's only a matter of time before another one collapses.

This photo was taken at dawn from the bottom of the Gibson Steps. The beach was out of bounds at the time due to bad weather, so I was being a bit naughty heading down the slippery steps.
