The Bay of Martyrs is an interesting and scenic location just outside the town of Peterborough along Victoria’s Great Ocean Road. While less grandiose and considerably less visited than the famous Twelve Apostles, the Bay of Martyrs can be a sublime location, given the vagaries of weather and light.

The above image was made under late afternoon light with a 35mm panoramic camera. I feel the warm/cool color contrast and the textural qualities of the scene have been emphasized within the somewhat unusual, for a panoramic image, vertical (portrait) composition.

After scanning the original panoramic transparency, Adobe Photoshop CS4 was employed to produce the above result.
