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.
Sawn Rocks, in New South Wales, Australia, is an example of a volcanic rock formation called “organ-piping”–it’s easy to see why. On our way to see this formation, a mishap occurred and I’ll share with you the following quote from my travel journal: “Sad day. On our way to Mt. Kaputar NP, I accidentally locked the car key in the boot. The car was unlocked, but the inside latch wouldn’t work. We ended up being towed by a guy named Brian to a garage in Murrurrundi owned by a guy named Ashley. It took a full 24 hours to get the key out and we ended up staying across the street from the garage at a trucker hotel instead of Craigton Resort at the NP.”
All was well in the end and I even managed to take this shot on our abbreviated visit to the park. We had schedules to keep!
Today’s challenge theme is Season and I chose this first image to send to Leanne for the challenge. To see all of the creative entries in the challenge, visit Leanne Cole Photography.
The second image, taken in the same location in Colorado, is also monochromatic in appearance. I processed both images for a light, high key look.
This is the first of many images I will post from my recent trip to Australia. It is from the first state I visited, Tasmania. It rained on the walk up to this lookout over the bay and the weather naturally encouraged me to think in monochrome! The image is composed of two shots, overlapped and stitched together. I’m glad to be participating in Leanne’s weekly challenge again and I appreciate so much that she took such care in showing my husband and me around in Melbourne and on the Great Ocean Road.

I shot this a few years ago while in Ireland. The bridge, located near Galway in western Ireland, was featured in the movie The Quiet Man starring John Wayne.
