Early Morning Mist Flowing Down the Slopes at Twelve Apostles, Great Ocean Road, Port Campbell National Park, Victoria, Australia

For those who may not know, The Twelve Apostles is a collection of limestone stacks off the shore of the Port Campbell National Park, by the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. It is breathtaking example of nature at work. Free standing rock stacks that are pounded by waves from the southern oceans. It is the differential rates of erosion along the coast with alternate bands of hard and soft rocks which results in an irregular coastline.

This summer nights at the Twelve Apostles were quite cold (for the summer) and humid and every morning I saw very think fog in lowlands. I spent a few days there but only once I was lucky enough to capture how the mist is flowing down from the cliffs into the ocean near the Twelve Apostles. The view was just spectacular! Rising sun reflected from clouds painted everything in red, yellow and magenta. The fog was curling and slowly streaming down into the sea. I made a couple of shots with different exposure – to capture the fog movement and to blur the movement. Later I selected the photo with fog curls.

    Stunning scene Ilya, the colours, fog, movement and the composition all come together brilliantly. It is also very well exposed in what I assume was a difficult situation.

    Beautiful, Ilya. Great colours and love the mist.

    I was here over the weekend. Wish I could have been there at sunrise or sunset, but just made a quick stop during the day.
