They say that Wilson's Promontory--or simply The Prom as the local people affectionately call--has a number of the most beautiful beaches in Victoria. This little promontory is the southernmost part of the main Australian Continent. Along the shoreline, mountains cut into the sea and create magnificent bays, such as Norman Bay above.

Beneath, there is squeaky sand. The field is broad and smooth. Behind, there are trees & hills. On left & right, there are mountains. Ahead, the endless sea, dotted with tiny islands. And above, the ever-blue sky.

No single picture does justice to the splendor of the land that lies about. Nor does this panorama of 3 photos. However, the panorama comes closer in delivering what any single photo would have fallen short of--the sense of continuation, inclusion & space.

  1. Good job, Nay. Way to go. The Prom is also featured as one of the best five national parks in Australia in The Age's travel section today.
