“The Twelve Apostles,” located a few degrees south of the 38th parallel, where the cold and tempestuous waters of the Bass Strait crash against Australia’s southernmost shore, are some of the most famous rock formations in the world.

Although there are only nine when the Great Ocean Road – from Torquay to Warrnambool – was being built in 1922, “The Twelve Apostles” sounded like a good name to attract tourists. Before then the 150-foot-tall formations were known as The Sow and Piglets.

Singaporean photographer Jonathan Garcia captured this aerial view of the Great Road and several of the apostles.
