Photographer's Note

The Pinnacles is contained within Nambung National Park, near the town of Cervantes, Western Australia. The Pinnacles were formed from lime leaching from the sand and by rain cementing the lower levels of the dune into a soft limestone. These most unusual wind-carved edifices were formed in the sand 25,000 to 30,000 years ago.

A 200 km au nord de Perth, le Nambung National Park abrite dans un vaste plateau dunaire (lunaire?) les Pinnacles, des monolithes de sιdiments calcaires sculptιs par l'ιrosion. Les plus hauts peuvent atteindre 4 mθtres. Ces piliers ont environ 30.000 ans et sont progressivement dιvorιs par les pluies et les vents.
