Moonscape of the Pinnacles

177

Nambung National Park Australia

Roughly 200km north of Perth you will find one of Western Australia’s iconic landscapes; the tall limestone formations and shifting sands of the Pinnacles, in Nambung National Park(created in 1956). Within the Nambung National Park, you will find what seems to be an endless number of spires in various shapes, and sizes. These amazing natural limestone structures, some standing as high as four meters, were formed approximately 25,000 to 30,000 years ago after the sea receded and left deposits of seashells.  The desert surrounding the pinnacles has initially been home to Aboriginal tribes dating back 6,000 years.

The pinnacles receive up to 150,000 visitors per year according to the National Park’s website, but the day we were there I only saw 4 other people. With a very long and winding road to take you deep into the desert, I was able to shoot right until dusk without any obstruction. It was perfect!
