Split Point Lighthouse and Eagle Rock in the Aireys Inlet

The coast along the Great Ocean Road was, and still is, called, the shipwreck coast for quite a few good reasons, unpredicted reefs, sea stags, strong currents and strong winds (a perpetual thing in Australia, that wind) made the passage to Victoria and Melbourne quite dangerous. That's why you can also find a few lighthouses along the way. And they are gorgeous. The more famous of them all is in Cape Otway, but the fee to even enter the grounds was a bit in the steep side, so we lucked out in finding this one. There's something almost romantic in them, maybe the loneliness that it implies or the hope that it must have represented for the travelers after months at sea.

    1. I'm a fan of any Olympus, actually, and for the price they are actually amazing for everyday use, and are really good cameras for mid range photography!
