Twelve Apostles

“Those who live by the sea can hardly form a single thought of which the sea would not be part.” – Hermann Broch

The Twelve Apostles are a series of unique limestone pillars jutting up from the sea off the coast of the state of Victoria in Australia. Formed by erosion over time, there are now only eight apostles remaining, as the others have fallen into the sea thanks to the constant pounding from the turbulent Southern Sea.

  1. Having lived about 8 years of my childhood in small coastal towns, I can relate to the quote you’ve used. There can be a hungering for the sea when you stray too far away from it for any length of time. A day doesn’t go by when I don’t think of the ocean. The wind in the trees always reminds me of the sounds on the shore. I’m looking forward to seeing the Twelve Apostles when I make it down south in the next year or so. Lovely shot.

    1. Thank you! I grew up 500 miles to the nearest sea and although I love it, mountains are my biggie. When we left Los Angeles, I wasn’t too terribly upset about leaving the ocean!

      1. Mountains are pretty special too! I can’t say that I have ever hiked a proper mountain yet. The ones we call mountains here in Queensland are really just big hills. Perhaps I will get bitten by the mountain bug when I travel to other countries and enjoy the wonderfully majestic landscapes. I’d say it’s probably a certainty that I’ll catch the mountain disease! 🙂

        1. All relative when it comes to mountains, although there is something very special about the massive granite giants like here in Colorado.
