This is in response to the Week #9 Camera Lucida – Photo Challenge.
Synonyms suggested Pinnacles means a tower (spire, steeple, belfry) or an apex (summit, crest, climax, zenith).
July last year we are admiring this wonderful desert sculptures which sit in North of Perth, Australia. We drive for at least 3 hours straight along the stretch of Indian Ocean Drive to come up in Nambung National Park just to see this incredible landscape. First time I have seen a limestones pillars and so many of them! Some good photographers can make this landscape looks like in an alien world, though the travel agent recommends you spending time here up to sunset for more photo ops. I do not want to be here at night it looks eerie and to top it all… this place was under the sea million years ago!
That was the time when we all thought we are going to live in Perth which I come to love! Which has a vibrant City, very good public transportation, lots of big parks nearby, warm, sun, beach (snakes, sharks, crocodile, spiders, hey this is normal but don’t worry it is not everywhere so mind where you walk or swim) you name it! As my husband already works there for quite some time and we just managed to go back and forth from Auckland to Perth (7 hrs flight direct AirNZ or Qantas) and vice versa whenever we can.
Little did we know it ain’t gonna happen! that we will live in another type of desert which is in UAE.
Well… fast forward out of the blue a call came, a job offer that is hard to resists full family package etc. Yep! here we are!
This is a SIGN (pun intended) that I think connects to my photo in mind would you agree?
