These are the Pinnacles in Nambung National Park near Cervantes. I would recommend any visit to Australia to include this unique, unforgettable place.

Hi Lisa
What an unusual sight of these geological monoliths as evidence of magic that our globe performs deep out of sight at first and then comes to light to make us wonder!!!

Indeed it's hard to believe such amazing formation is a result of natural act but how well you have photographed it...

Superb shot, Congrats and tfs.
Best wishes

Hello Lisa,
Surely this is a very peculiar landscape.
It looks like a series of monoliths in a sand desert.
The area with these pinnacles also seems to be very large.
I think this park is located far from the beaten path but the landscape certainly looks most interesting.
Best regards, Paul

Hi Lisa,
So photogenic and impressive view with these strange rock formations, well taken, nice warm colors, tfs.

Ciao cara Lisa, gran bella panoramica sulle fantastiche formazioni rocciose, cielo spettacolare, magnifici colori e splendida luce, bravissima, buona Domenica, un caro abbracciò Silvio

Hello Lisa

Beautifully composed shot and unforced natural colour. When we lived in Oz, we were on the east coast, and never made it as far as the other side of the continent, though we did get to Cairns and Adelaide - and Fiji for that matter. So much to see, and so much missed, as tour image makes clear.



nice shot, showing good this unique place. I agree with you, it is a fantastic place to be...

Hello Lisa,
You seem to be a very infrequent visitor to TE of late, I hope you are keeping well. Superb capture of this fascinating desert like landscape. Excellent colour contrasts and some beautifully rendered textural detail.

Hello Lisa,
This place looks really wonderful and so special with all these many rock formations as far as the eye reaches. The very warm tones of the rocks and sand are very vivid and appealing toom, especially with the blue sky and white clouds here.

Dear Lisa,

Simple, but spectacular composition, resulting in a stunning image.

Best Wishes,

Hi, dear Lisa, I'm delighted to greet you after a short vacation. Very good picture of these interesting figures of rock in the beautiful desert, very well captured in this beautiful image, with good sharpness, light, color and quality. A great work perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thank you for sharing this beautiful work.

Good night and happy start to the week.
All the best from the south of Spain.

Hello Lisa,
What a very strange place. Another one of Nature's permanent sculpture gardens. The sky looks quite artistic too. In every way an amazing sight.
Kind regards,

Ciao Lisa,

Il y avait déjà un petit moment qu'on ne t'avait vue . C'est un bonheur, surtout avec une aussi belle photo d'un petit coin désertique de ton grand pays.Les structures sont belles mais c'est le ciel qui remporte la palme.



Ciao cara Lisa,

Oh, the pinnacle in the f/g has the features of a crabby, bad-tempered witch!.
I'm sure if you looked carefully at some of the others, faces or characters would become evident!
It's an amazing, natural place!
The limited colour palette emphasises the drama of the scene, which you have composed beautifully.
Even the wispy nature of the clouds are on your side!

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Hello Lisa
Deserts are fascinating and differents each other.
This landscape is unique with such rock formations and amazing colors.


Hello Lisa,
These pinnacles look like an army, and the pinnacle in the foreground seems to be the leader. :-) The sand looks like saffron, too. It's a fascinating view of a very unique landscape. I hope all is well in your corner of the world.

Hi Lisa,
I've always liked desert landscapes. And when dry sandy terrain is complemented with such weird and wonderful rock formations, the result is unforgettable. Would certainly worth for a visit, but terribly far from almost anywhere.

Indeed unique. The warm yellow-orange sand and pinacles are a nice contrast to the blue sky.

Regards, Jan

Hi Lisa

I have also been to this fantastic national park but loaded my shots under Cervantes. Anyway, a fabulous shot with striking warm cold color contrasts between the orange sand and blue sky. Tfs!

Hello Lisa, Good advice to visit this unusual and beautiful place. Bit I doubt if I will go to Australia once more. It is so far! Amazing view. I can imagine it is very hot there. look how this small plant is hiding in the shadow.

Kind regrad s Malgo

Ciso Lisa,
Yes I think that would be definitely one of my favourite places to visit in Australia. It seems to be however on the other side of Sydney which makes is so inaccessible, I mean people have to usually restrict the visit to smaller fragment of your huge country. So in the end, althouth I would like to see it very much, even if I ever get to Australia, I may need to skip it...
I love those extraordinary rock formations!
Amazing light and colors.
Simply beautiful!!

Hello, Lisa!

The strong color of the sand makes the image very attractive, and these "sentinels" give very good depth to the composition! Very nice contrast with the sky! Wonderful landscape and a perfect capture of that! Excellent job!

Hi Lisa
I don't remember exactly, but I recall you saying this area out west in Auzzie land is way way way out there. I guess you have to fly from Sydney right? It would be worth it for sure.

so in the bg i see trees? so its desert and tree landscape? along with the funny looking stones its pretty darn cool isn't it.

I wonder how it looks at night, any night shots here?
wonderful subjects and overall look. cheers
