The Pinnacles Desert, Western Australia


The spellbinding Pinnacles in the eponymous Pinnacles Desert are among Australia’s most impressive limestone rock formations.  Created from the seashells of an ancient ocean rich in marine life, the shells were broken down into lime rich sand blown inland to form high dunes.

From these dunes, the formation of the Pinnacles emerged, looking more like somewhere from a long time ago in a galaxy far far away than earthly monoliths.
