I like the Twelve Apostles but looking at this photo, with the circle's setting in such a tidy field and straight hedge round it, makes me just wish I could go back in time and see the landscape when the circle was first built. Must have been quite different. If only... thelonious Posted by thelonious

I remember visiting the Twelve Apostles feeling such a sense of...'disappointment' is too strong a word, but the circle has a very difficult setting. There seems little in the immediate landscape to link in you say, the hedges, roads, and not too far away human activity distracts, when it's naturally a site where you struggle to capture the feel of how it once may have been.
Trying to photograph it all is impossible. My pictures are all 'bits & pieces', and any taken of the complete circle make it appear as a random field with a few dots and blobs randomly sitting there.
Maybe I'm being too negative. Maybe I need to get back there and re-evaluate!
