Sossosvlei

By MDaniel
Taken on Olympus OM4ti

This shot was taken to show the relationship between the giant sand dunes (1500mtrs the highest)

As you can see the dunes though not completly shown look very forboding in comparison to the mountains. The sand is very brown/red in colour, because of the iron oxide present in the sand.

Theshot was taken as the sun was setting. See the following link to an older photograph I took to see the majesty of the dunes.

Great photo of desert dunes. The ones in the front almost look as if they have been drawn.
