The Blueness

The Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia, is considered one of the best drives in the entire world. It's not hard to believe seeing pictures of it, and actually driving the road from one end to the other is a great experience. The sights and scenery are immense.

The most famous sight is the 12 Apostles, a series of incredible rock formations that have withstood millions of years of relentless pounding by the ocean. Yet, against the never ending power of waves, these rock formations persist and rise from the ocean in defiance of continuous onslaught.

The weather didn't cooperate during my time on the Great Ocean Road, with neither morning nor evening providing the beautiful light that photographers seek. Instead, I focused on the mood that the incoming storms provided. Power, a growing darkness, and sea spray rising against the cliffs helped define that mood, with a long exposure accentuating what I was seeing.
