A Land Arose by Dee-T A Land Arose by Dee-T
Phillip Island
Victoria , Australia

The Pinnacles are an amazing rock formation off the coast of Cape Woolamai along the rugged shores of Phillip Island overlooking Bass Strait. To me, it looks as though land rose from the wild seas. At its base, steep shores, orange boulders and wild westerly winds make it a pretty difficult place to photograph technically (spray everywhere, slippery rocks, freak waves). But due to the wildness, it can make for some dramatic looking scenes. This is a 7 shot panorama of 1 minute exposure for each frame taken on a cold, intermittently wet and wild day in June this year. It currently sits as a 1m canvas print on my entrance hall :)

Just perfect. Didn't even know where the Pinnacles were and they are only an hour down the road. On my list to see now.

how'd you get down there?
when i went down to phillip island there was no way down there. maybe i just didn't look hard enough

When you see the pinnacles, there is a narrow neck of land - there's a small path heading down that's pretty steep there

Beautiful rocks there in Australia. It reminds me of a flooded Bryce Canyon. Great photograph, too. :D Faved.
