the pinnacles

The Pinnacles at Nambung National Park, Western Australia.

 

"These amazing natural limestone structures, some standing as high as five metres, were formed approximately 25,000 to 30,000 years ago, after the sea receded and left deposits of sea shells. Over time, coastal winds removed the surrounding sand, leaving the pillars exposed to the elements."

 

It was the third time I went to this place and I was really hoping for a good sunset. But luck typically wasn't with me that evening. This was the only decent shot of the bunch as I managed to get a bit of side-lighting before it went fully overcast again. I hate the footprints and am so tempted to spot-remove them all but my better half convinced me not to.
