Located at the Nambung National Park in Western Australia, the Pinnacles are limestone structures created 25,000 to 30,000 years ago after the sea receded and left deposits of sea shells. Over time, the surrounding sand were removed through the exposure to coastal winds, leaving the pillars exposed as we know them today.
I visited the park with Clarence during our trip to Western Australia last month and took some pictures. I am glad that we have good weather for the day. The place wouldn’t be as interesting if it was overcast.
Walking around, I noticed the interesting shapes formed by the shadows of the trees growing near the rocks. Going against conventional wisdom, I shot into the sun with a small aperture and got this.
The place is full of rocks of various shapes and sizes.
Inspired by my earlier shot towards the light, I came across another tree-on-rock and tried a low-angled shot. Not having live-view on my ancient Nikon D200, I had to estimate the composition and got the shot after a few tries.
