From Traveling Australia

The Twelve Apostles is a collection of limestone stacks off the shore of Port Campbell National Park, by the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia

I Witnessed the rugged splendour of the famous 12 Apostles, magnificent rock stacks that rise up majestically from the Southern Ocean on Victoria’s dramatic coastline. And you can tell I was impressed by the amount of photos I took there.

Created by constant erosion of the limestone cliffs of the mainland beginning 10–20 million years ago, the stormy Southern Ocean and blasting winds gradually eroded the softer limestone, forming caves in the cliffs.

The caves eventually became arches and when they collapsed rock stacks up to 45 metres high were left isolated from the shore. View the 12 Apostles at sunrise and sunset as they change colour from dark and foreboding in shadow to brilliant sandy yellow under a full sun. ( text from visit Melbourne)

This photo was taken along the Great Ocean road in Victoria, Australia at one of the beautiful oceans and cliff views, I have so totally forgot what was what place, but all of them were breathtakingly beautiful. Lets appreciate the beauty and forget my lack of memory 😉

I saw these two turtles also when visiting Australia, as with previous post of the frog I totally forgot I had this shot, as I did go overboard with the amount of pictures I took there.

Once again I am lifting my own tail, but this is rather nice shot. I could have have had little bit larger f number for larger area of focus, but these are such at the moment shots… The turtles look happy, eh?

Lone Cypress tree

The Lone Cypress tree, believed to be more than 250 years old, draws many visitors to the scenic 17-Mile Drive on the Monterey Peninsula to take photographs of it, me included. Yes this is from our California trip last fall. I got distracted for a while. Here are two shots
