12 Apostles

Arguably one of Australia’s most recognizable iconic locations, the 12 Apostles in Victoria. This location has been shot to hell and back, but its always changing as we now only have 8 Apostles remaining, but if you look at little closer you can easily see new ones being formed by erosion, I guess by the time they are ready to photograph, the landscape photographers of the time will have 100 terabyte 3D cameras, so right now you left with my fine example of what remains today … Well there are others but its my blog so you get my image and my capture is the best anyway, in my eyes …. ๐Ÿ™‚

Shot in Jan 2010 …

    NIce capture there buddy!

    Great colours and the reds are radiant without being blown out, which can be very hard to do…so well done!

  3. Ryan Epstein says:

    Very nice colours Neal great work! Looks like some really nice light

  4. The colours and light on this are fantastic!

    Beautiful landscape, the perspective is amazing.

  6. Must agree with you mate, that is one of the best 12 apostles images I have seen and like you seen, it’s not exactly un-photographed ๐Ÿ™‚

    Very well done, the light, clouds and red tones are perfect.

    I have never been here, so do not know what it looks like but my only wish was to have even more expanse by showing more to the left, more ocean – but I guess it might be problematic as the sun must be out there somewhere.

  7. Cheers Flem … I know what you mean I wanted another frame and have a few sitting here from the left side but the light is just too harsh and once over the horizon the cliff walls fade from their brilliant orange so in the end you have to make the call, great looking cliffs and no blown skies of duller cliffs and a wider shot …

    At either march june or September the sun would be in a slightly different angle so that may help …

    I know when I shot it again in May the sun was in a shocking location for this particular location …

    I am trying out a new program that shows suns angle and path and its not google either … It was written by a photographer

    • Yeah I guessed one might be shooting straight into the sun by wanting to add more frames to the left.

      There are a few of those programs around, like The Photographer’s Ephemeris – quite handy. Met this photog in Death Valley who had it on his iphone, very clever.

    Nice interpretation Neal, very different to others. I see photos of them everyday, and this is a winner. I only live 2-1/2 hours away but never visit, too touristy for me.

    • Cheers Thomas … Your 100% so many tourists it actually put the main spot in Yosemite to shame … And some very pushing European tourists who have ZERO respect for the outdoors.

    Hi Neal, great shot! love the light and colours. would be good to get some more frames to the left so the large apostle is a bit off centre, but as you say would have been blown!
    Photographer ephemeris is a great piece of software ay!

  10. i reckon it’s brilliant Neal.
    such a photographed location, and somehow (really don’t know how) but you’ve got a different spin to it.
    I actually don’t mind the main pillar being in the centre, it demands you pay it attention.
    the cliffs sweeping in from the right are amazing as well.

    awesome work man! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks Stephen … I agree on the main pillar, I wanted it to be in your face so it felt like you where standing right there. So many images of the area feel like you looking at the scene and fail to bring the size of the pillars up front and close …

    Gorgeous balance of colors and tones here. Might be recognizable, but it’s all in the rendering of it. Beautiful work.
