Few places capture the essence of the West Australian landscape as well as the Pinnacles Desert in the Nambung National Park at Cervantes.

This well-documented site features thousands of limestone structures known as the "Pinnacles" and the lack of light pollution gives way to some of the best skies in the world.

This is an extract from a larger 360 degree photosphere which is a combination of 80 individual images and took over 40 minutes to capture.
