This is the second of three GigaPans I took on the 21st of December 2008 of the Twelve Apostles. The first picture was taken just out of view in the right center of the picture where the elevated walkway goes out of sight.

Since I couldn't put it any more concisely, here is a description from www.visitvictoria.com Will open in a new tab or window
The Twelve Apostles are giant rock stacks that rise majestically from the Southern Ocean and are the central feature of the rugged Port Campbell National Park. The Twelve Apostles are the remnants from constant erosion of the limestone cliffs of the mainland that began 10-20 million years ago. The stormy Southern Ocean and blasting winds gradually eroded the softer limestone, forming caves in the cliffs. The caves eventually became arches and when they collapsed rock stacks up to 45 metres high were left isolated from the shore.
The Twelve Apostles are located just east of Port Campbell, along the Great Ocean Road. - visitvictoria.com

    Thanks for the compliment. It is nice, but I wish that I had a camera that would shoot RAW photos so I could batch convert the pics before assembling the GigaPan because the colors were so much more pronounced in person compared to the photos. A day without the haze would have been nice as well, but I am not going to complain. It was a great trip and a fun drive along the Great Ocean Road to get those GigaPans.

    Such a nice panorama. I like the stratification of the soft stone. Tone of the sand and the patterns left from the waves as they wash ashore. Oh, and I especially like the curvature of the shoreline.
