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 unique natural limestone structures, some standing in the sand 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 was initially home to Aboriginal tribes dating back 6,000 years.
According to the National Park's website, the pinnacles receive up to 150,000 visitors annually, but I only saw four other people the day we were there. Also, with a very long and winding road to take you deep into the desert, I could shoot until dusk without any obstruction. It was perfect!
