Sand Dune - Namib Desert

Sand Dune - Namib Desert

These are the tallest and largest sand dunes in the world. They obtain their characteristic red color due to their high concentration of ferrous compounds (Iron) in the sand. These, different than many other desert sand dunes, would not move or tend to migrate by the effect of the wind, and they remain stationary. The wind does contribute to the beautiful curves and shapes of the dunes as you can see in this picture.

other sizes: small medium original

How high is the Namib Desert sand dune?

Amazing light and composition! Every time I see this dune, I am struck by its beauty. Must have been incredible to see it in front of you.

I love most of your work but this one is simple breathtaking. I am a photograper from Dominica Republic and friends with your sister. La luz y sombra, la perspectiva, la dimension, el encuadre y la composicion son simplemente perfectas.

Stunning gallery but this image is my favorite! Just bowled me over with one mouse click!
What is the distance between the foreground and the 'dune' er mountain....?
Deserves to be in any art gallery! :-)

Woah...looks like a Dali abstract. Extraordinary and perfectly composed.
Richard Calmes19-Nov-2005 12:13
This is a great shot!. The scale of the sand vs the trees, the curvs, composition and color are superb!

Me encanta la composición de esta foto... esas curvas marcadas y ese contraste de colores le dan a la foto un dinamismo fantástico que además se complementa muy bien con la parte baja y el árbol que nos da dimensión del tamaño... muy bonita Cesar :)

Beautiful image. Love the colours and the sharp curves of the dune.
Marcos García04-Oct-2005 21:06
Fantástica composición vertical con los árboles como referencia (parecen simples matorrales al pie de la inmensa duna) INCREÍBLE!!!
Zane Paxton02-Oct-2005 09:55

This one is unbelivable... The way you've turned a landscape shot into an almost abstract modern art piece is just fantastic. Great creation.
