12 Apostles on the Great Ocean Road drive, near Melbourne, Australia

In a span of one decade between 2003 and 2010 the limestone structures that dot the ocean at 12 Apostles have been eroding. The beautiful sights at this National Park are being threatened by the rapid scale of erosion due to environmental factors and arches like the one I captured, will have eroded and fallen in the next few decades. To raise environmental awareness of our pressing climate change issues these places should be visited to understand the delicate balance between nature and the environment.
