Photographer's Note

This winding road is the Great Ocean Road.

This senic road runs between Torquay and Warrnambool in Victoria, Australia. It can be split in two parts if you look at the landscape. Between Torquay and Cape Otway you drive on the slopes of the mountains just above the Bass Strait/Southern Ocean. In this part you get a new surprising view after every corner. I posted two other views in the workshop, a scenic one and one of a beach.

On the part between Cape Otway and Warrnambool you drive a bit more inland on the flats. This is also where you find the 12 Apostles and the Bay of islands.

The Great Ocean Road was built between World War I and World War II by returned servicemen in honour of their fallen comrades. The road took 16 years to build and it was all done by hand using picks, shovels and dynamite.
