These photos were all taken in an extraordinary area of Nambung National Park – The Pinnacles Desert. Thousands of limestone pillars, which range in size up to 5m tall and 2m thick at the base, rise up out of the sand and heath. They were formed thousands of years ago when ancient plant roots formed a weak cementation of calcite within the dunes and have been exposed by wind and shifting sands. It is difficult to convey how dramatic and unexpected this spectacle is. The stone pillars resemble a stone army on the march – rather like a scene from Lord of The Rings! They are beautiful and eerie at the same time.
