A different take on the Great Ocean Road

Written by Gary on May 26th, 2015

In my last post I mainly shot waterfalls and rainforests in the west Otways along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia.

This post takes this further and explores a few coastal seascapes using the weatherproof image stabilised Olympus OM-D  Micro Four Thirds cameras.

Long exposure hand held shot in bright sunlight as a storm approaches bringing a small rain shower behind the coastal rocks:

Same location, different view as more rain showers approach the coast:

From high up on a hill, a lone lady walking the ocean beach at sunset, and hopefully I have captured the remote serenity ambience that she must be enjoying:

And driving further west along the Great Ocean Road to the Twelve Apostles region at sunset:

Tourists having trouble working out which way to shoot – into the sun or away from the sun – so let’s cover both shots:
