IT GIVES THE FEEL OF THE SUN DROPPING OVER YOUR LEFT SHOULDER , AND THE AREAS OF LIGHT AND SHADOW.
The Pinnacles are limestone formations contained within Nambung National Park, near the town of Cervantes, Western Australia.
The raw material for the limestone of the Pinnacles came from seashells in an earlier epoch rich in marine life. These shells were broken down into lime rich sands which were blown inland to form high mobile dunes.
The best season to see the Pinnacles is spring from August to October, as the days are mild and wildflowers start to bloom. The pinnacle formations are best viewed in the early morning or late afternoon as the play of light brings out the colours and the extended shadows of the formations delivers a contrast that brings out their features. Most animals in the park are nocturnal, but emus and kangaroos can be seen during the daytime, more commonly in the evening or early morning.
