Gibsons Beach Dawn…

I have just posted this image on Instagram, but thought I would take the opportunity to post it here as well. These two stacks are known as Gog and Magog and are part of the famous 12 Apostles limestone formations on the Great Ocean Road. These formations are obviously being constantly eroded by the elements, indeed two have collapsed since I first arrived in Australia 20 years ago, but the survivors still make for wonderful photographic opportunities.

This image is actually an outtake from the session, as it was a ‘set-up’ shot as I established exposure and composition. As such, it was shot at ISO 400 as opposed to ISO 100, which has produced a little more grain than I am used to seeing in my prints. Still, I liked the moon disappearing over the horizon, so I decided to process it anyway. Now I just have to work on the rest of the files…

    1. Hi Jessica, thank you for your kind comment! I use the Canon 5D Mk III, and this image was taken using the 16-35mm f4 L… although I hasten to add that it could have been taken with any DSLR… they are all good these days!
