The Pinnacles Desert, Nambung National Park, Western Australia.

Practically unknown to the wider public until the late 1960s, the Pinnacles Desert is part of the Nambung National Park. The Pinnacles Desert was added to the existing National Park that was named after the winding Nambung River. Nambung means crooked in the local Aboriginal tribal language. It is a park with a 26km stretch of sparkling coastline bordered by rolling ancient sand dunes that extend inland into banksias woodlands. Pretty red river gum trees line the banks of the Nambung River until it disappears into limestone caves. Massive sand dune fields characterise the area near the coast where the Pinnacles Desert lies.

    The Pinnacles is such an unusual place, but brilliant. Great capture with the strong blues in the sky and the yellow sands. Rule of thirds shows perfectly here.

  • What a great comment Chistina! Thank you so much =)

    Beautiful Felix… I love the intense blue of the sky contrasting with the sandy base.

  • Many thanks Derek! The sky was so blue that I don’t need a polarizer anymore :)
