The Nambung National Park is located just south of the town of Cervantes and 160km north of Western Australia’s capital city, Perth. The main feature of this small park is the hundreds of remarkable limestone structures which dominate the desert landscape. Some extend just a few centimetres above ground-level while others exceed 5 meters. The pinnacles are the only remaining part of a limestone seabed. They were protected by a calcrete cap while the rest of the seabed was eroded over time.
We visited the park at sunrise in order to take advantage of the morning ‘golden light’ period. Despite only being a two hour drive from Perth, the isolation that was apparent throughout most of my Australian travel was evident; for the first 2 hours of our visit we were the only people within the park. In the far distance of this shot you can see the Indian Ocean.
