Namibian Desert Dreams

Theres something about the desert that I love. I think it's because it's so huge and bare. You look out across that massive expanse and all you can see is sand and nothing else. It's amazing that all those teeny tiny grains of sand can create such massive beauty in just the way each sand grain hangs onto to each other to create dunes as high as mountains!

I love the way the colour of the sand changes with just the light. When the sun rises and sets each grain reflects the sun light and in just that moment, the sand becomes a fiery orange.

I love the way the wind creates swirls of sand just above the dunes surface. It is a mystical and magical feeling to watch the movements in the sand

And I love the fact that there is nothing else around. It is completey devoid of technology, civilization and modernisation

There is much beauty in isolation.







All these photos were taken in Namibia. Available here

I live in the Sonoran desert, and it looks NOTHING like that! It is 'high desert' - higher elevation.
Visit my blog, I post pics from time to time.
All that sand wouldn't thrill me...
