Pinnacles Sunset by Jan Fijolek

This is the sunset at Nambung National Park located about 245 km drive north from Perth, Western Australia. It’s believed the Pinnacles were created millions of years ago as seashells were broken down into sand and then eroded by water and wind.
I am not sure what has caused this sky colour. Maybe sand, it was very windy day.

Captured with Nikon D300 and 18 – 200 Nikkor VR lens.

    Just love the silhouettes and that rich deep burnt orange! I love the graphic quality created by the strength of the hills and your exquisite balance of composition!

  • Thank you Joanne for your kind comment. I am still not 100% sure where this orange colour come from, maybe it was sand but..
