This past week I’ve been down at Port Fairy in Victoria in what has become an annual sojourn to the town’s folk music festival. This year, a friend offered to take me for a quick drive down the Great Ocean Road to see the Twelve Apostles which was just too good an offer to refuse. There are numerous lookouts on the way to the Apostles’ viewing site and this small set was taken at Loch Ard Gorge – part of the Port Campbell National Park. It derives its name from the clipper ship that ran ashore there in 1878 as it neared its 3 month journey from England to Melbourne killing all but 2 of the 54 who were aboard.
Unfortunately the weather was not on my side the day we went. A large weather front had moved in swiftly that afternoon and I was racing to get some quick shots before moving onto the next location (I did have a music festival to get to remember). I’ll post a few more photo’s from this little side trip in the next few days.
