Sossusvlei Sunrise 1

Namibia Dunes

The dunes at Sossusvlei were our main destination in Namibia.

They did not disappoint. Photography is all about directing the “eye” (the attention) of the viewer. The eye has no trouble getting around in the heavy sand of the dunes. Just show it the way. Clearly and simply.

Ingredients in this image: simplicity, lines, tonal balance, impact, and special (early morning) lighting.

In post-production editing, special attention was given to optimizing the tonal balance between the areas in front of and behind the dunes.
