Here's an image from one of my all time favourite shooting locations: Victoria's Great Ocean Road. Around 30 minutes drive further west from the famous Twelve Apostles will take you to London Arch. Formerly known as London Bridge the middle section of this once double-span natural bridge collapsed in 1990. While the similarity with its former namesake is now somewhat diminished, its still a fun place to visit and offers good photography opportunities at the edges of the day. A former boardwalk to the beach below is now closed to protect a fairy penguin colony in a cave at the bottom of the cliff.

This image was made at sunset with the last rays of the sun illuminating the sandstone cliff faces and providing a great color contrast with the cool colors of the sky and water. A long Shutter Speed provided the wispy effect in the water as it rolled on and off the beach.
