Loch Ard Gorge which resides near the Twelve Apostles on Victoria's Great Ocean Road, is named after a clipper ship, the 'Loch Ard', which ran aground on nearby Muttonbird Island in 1878.
While the crowds took their usual place at sunset overlooking the Twelve Apostles, I captured this 'lone apostle' a little farther down the beach. The shape of the wave and the surrounding textures make it one of my favorite images.
Driving along before sunrise I noticed this large rock sitting alone on the beach against the crashing waves.
Instead of composing a typical beach photo with palm trees, I decided to wade in and make the rock the subject.
