    Twelve Apostles...Eleven, Ten, Nine, Eight

    Last Sunday, one of the so-called Twelve Apostles sea stacks crumbled into the sea in front of bemused onlookers. I say "so-called" as there actually were nine stacks, and now there are eight. The Twelve Apostles are one of the most-photographed destinations in Australia, and are located several hundred kilometres south-west of Melbourne. The stack which collapsed was one of the most prominent, with its distinctive wave-like shape, so the remaining formation has lost much of its allure.

    I saw a photo of it this morning on another forum. You are right, the scene loses a lot of its allure - good thing I took pictures there last year.

    It was a great shame Kevin. If there is a sunny side, I guess it is that yours, Robert T's and Ken Duncan's images of the 12 Apostles may have their values enhanced even further!

    Mine is not on the same level as Ken's, and I guess I won't have the opportunity to get better at this location. From what I was told, it is practically impossible to get permission to shoot the apostles from the beach - Ken pulled a lot of strings to get down there for that shot.

    That's true, John. I've never sold a print of anything, but I certainly have a LOT of images of the Twelve Apostles in all manner of weather conditions. One thing I don't have though is an image from the lower viewpoint such as that one by Ken Duncan. That part of beach is inaccessible to the general public. I have one image of the Twelve Apostles in my gallery, but the two stacks shown are on the one part of beach which is accessible.

    There must be cheaper options than $60,000. Ken Duncan isn't the only person ever granted access to that strip of beach.
