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…

Stunning! What camera do you use?
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!
Outstanding photograph! Extremely well done
Thanks Michael, I really appreciate that coming from you as all of your work is just superb!
love this one Michael. You probably use a really good monitor but on my computer screen I can see no grain 🙂
Thanks Susanne! I can just see a little more grain than usual in the print, not that it is bad, but you know what you become accustomed to… Hope you have a great Easter!
Absolutely stunning Michael!
Thank you so much Edith! I hope you have a great Easter break!
I love it Michael!
Thank you Laura!! I hope you have a chance to play with your new Sony over Easter!
You’re welcome! I’m going to use it on Tuesday for sure. Didn’t have a chance this weekend. Happy Easter!
Wow! Incredible pictures 🙂

Hi Anni & Toby, my sincere apologies for the delay in replying to you, I have been rather slack with my blogging of late! Thank you so much for your kind comments, much appreciated! Michael
