Sunset over the Twelve Apostles

Located in the Port Campbell National Park in Australia, the Twelve Apostles are a group of limestone stack edge along the famous Great Ocean Road. Created by erosion from 10 to 20 million years, water and wind have shaped the caves in the cliffs. The caves eventually became arches and finally fell on the shore. The Twelve Apostles often changes colors during the day, but the most beautiful sight remains the sunrise and sunset. Today, there are only eight rocks. The latter collapsed in 2005. The rate of erosion at the foot of the stone pillars is approximately 2 cm per year.
