The Mysterious Apostle

by Kristi Hines · Australia

One of the places my husband was looking forward to shooting the most was The Twelve Apostles along the Great Ocean Road in Australia. I saw one video of the place, but really nothing can convey the beauty of it all until you are standing along the viewing points looking out into the ocean and at these monstrous formations.

Be sure to also check out Jason’s shot of this awesome place, which is currently sitting on the front page of HDR Spotting.
