These stately limestone stacks off the southeastern coast of Australia are constantly changing due to erosion. In fact, even the number of stacks is changing but the iconic name is not. Today, only eight Apostles remain in this famous cluster, but many more stacks stand along the coastline.
This charming structure on Australia’s southeastern coast is a lighthouse no more, but preserved as a historical monument. I love technology, especially sustainable solutions to human problems. However, I have to admit my nostalgia when I think that now there is a solar-powered light in front of the original structure that efficiently emits three white flashes every 18 seconds. Where’s the romance!
One of the many things to appreciate about Australia is the opportunity to take in an unobstructed coastal view, something that still exists but is not always readily available in the U.S. The Victoria coastline, even being in a relatively populated area, still offers a bit of morning solitude and, on this particular morning, beautiful light for a sunrise image.
Another thing I took special note of in Australia is the way the spindrift blows backward off the breakers. I know our waves in California have spindrift sometimes, but it seemed especially lovely along the Victoria coast. Lovely also is the morning light reflected in shallow pools dappling a shoreline rock shelf.
