This might be the place to visit - a moonlike area with the most unbelievable monoliths, meniers according to the best Asterix and Obelix tradition, and colours to set your mind ablaze.
Wondering what I am talking about ? Let me introduce you to the Pinnacles - a Western Australian phenomenon, some 200 kms north of Perth which has all the elements of something totally extraordinary.
The Pinnacles are in Nambung National Park and consist of a massive area of limestone structures in a bed of orange sand. Strange as this may sound the limestone consist of seashells which were broken down and blown in land to form structures which have been eroded and shaped to a myriad forms and heights.
We arrive close to sunset which I think is probably the best time to be here. The swirl of clouds overhead created patterns in the sky and the light cast the shadows on the stones that made them come alive, some looked like women's faces, others like mushrooms or penises depending on how you felt and if you roamed around long enough you could probably find your dog and your lover among them too. As the sun set, fireballs appeared in the sky and set the sand alight and created the most amazing vistas of bygone eras and futuristic fancy.
