PESO - Pinnacles Non-Pano

Brian's excellent shots of the Pinnacles reminded me of similar formations
in Egypt's White Desert, west of Cairo, so called because it is a vast
limestone bed which has been heavily eroded over the millennia.  Difference
here is that the erosion has left many of the formations top-heavy, as in
the second shot.  Some of them are as much as 10 metres high, others so
small you can step over them.

Like Brian, I would love to go back and spend more time in varying light
conditions to do the area justice.

G'day all

Thanks to everyone who looked and/or commented.  Most seemed to think
this one was better than the earlier pano I posted and I agree.  I'd
love to go back and spend a lot more time there.
