Australia Pt.2 – The Pinnacles

245km north of Perth in the Nambung national park near the town of Cervantes in Western Australia is one of Australia’s most unique landscapes.
The Pinnacles.

Limestone spiers,some several meters tall, rise out of the shifting bright yellow desert sand across a huge area.
The area was practically unknown until the 1960’s and the process by which the spiers was formed is still contentious.

What is sure is that it is a truly magical place, an alien landscape the like of which I have never seen before.

    @Jon, yep crazy looking place. Been a while since I’ve been anywhere that felt that strange.

    B&W?? what’s that? oh, wait maybe I’ve heard of it, it’s something those weirdos still insisting on using the outdated technology of film are into right??
    I’ll try it and fax them over to you ;-)

    ok, I’ve come back for another look. You traveled 245km out to see this!? And I thought I was keen getting up at 3am to shoot sunrises!
    You were super lucky with the weather. The light, the storm clouds and the colour of the same and those thing’s just seems to bring everything into alignment.
