Photographer's Note

These are the limestone rock formations known as the Pinnacles. Indigenous Australians shunned this area, as they considered the rocks resembled giant fingers of an underground monster, reaching up through the surface. Incredibly, they were not discovered by Europeans until 1936. I've actually reduced saturation here a little. Taken just before sunset on a tour. I would have loved more time here.

Cervantes was the author of Don Quixote

"The town was named after a ship that was wrecked nearby. The ship, in turn, was named after Miguel de Cervantes, author of Don Quixote." (Wikipedia)

The stones in the fg are markers for the four wheel drive & off road vehicles to stay on the track.
