Sandstone rock pinnacles. In arid regions, wind erosion can create upright columns of sedimentary rock such as sandstone. This effect occurs over millions of years of surface erosion by wind, when cores of material harder than the surrounding rocks survive above the landscape. Blast effects of sand carried by the wind then round-off the feature. Photographed at Namburg National Park, Cervantes, Australia.
