The Razorback is a unique seascape rock formation sitting out down near the twelve apostles along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria. We were lucky enough to get this dramatic sky in our image taken at our last Great Ocean Road Photography Tour. We love the blue-greenish tones in the water and the way the white wash swirls around the Razorback.
Bay of Islands - Peterborough, Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia
The pale limestone of this section of coast reflects a different quality of light and offers superior photographic opportunity in overcast conditions. Highly underrated!
Hopetoun Falls - Beech Forest, Great Ocean Road, Australia
Perhaps one of the most unique and picturesque waterfalls in Victoria, it’s easy to be enticed and drawn in by the beauty and awe of Hopetoun Falls. Located within the Great Otway National Park, the Aire River twists and turns until it roars over this deep escarpment towards the valley floor – abundant with vibrant ferns and moss-covered rocks.
