Pictures of the Moment - Rocks That Look Like...Rockets

Pinnacles desert at Nambung National Park, 230 Km north of Perth, near Cervantes in Western Australia. The Pinnacles are resistant erosional remnants of a calcite-cemented sandstone, capped by calcrete. Shadows make for great photos here at sunset - though I was taken by the playful light of quickly-passing midday clouds here. It might have worked better as a video in this case.

Wildflower season (August-early October) is another special time to visit this part of Australia.

The most dramatic scenery always includes rocks.
