Pinnacles Desert, Western Australia

pinnacles12

I recently visited Western Australia and took a trip to the Pinnacles Desert, which is about a 3 hour drive north of Perth in the Nambung National Park.  The area gets its name from limestone formations that are clusters of seashells that were broken down into lime-rich sands that were blown inland from the nearby Indian Ocean to form high mobile dunes.

Arriving at sunrise, the pinnacles exploded into a forest of gold as the sun crested the horizon.  A truly amazing sight.  I worked all day in the desert, not leaving until sunset.  I have created a folio of my images from this trip at: http://aransomephoto.com/gallery/pinnacles-desert-western-australia/
