I wonder how many iconic type landscapes like this have come and gone over 1000s of years erosion. In my lifetime at least a couple of the 12 Apostles have collapsed, London Bridge collapsed, Tom and Eva’s arch collapsed. So it’s forever changing, new sea stacks are created, as old ones tumble.
When the sky is so much brighter than your foreground, especially at sunrise and sunset and only a view clouds up in the sky, then it is time for extreme long exposure! This image is a 4-minute exposure at sunset using 6 stop ND and 3 graduate. Without the movement of the clouds, the sky would have been very blank. I am really happy with this image, finally, I captured the treasure of the Great Ocean Road in the perfect light nature given me that day!
