[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
C'est le salar qui a donné son nom au site de Sossusvlei.
Le site se forma il y a 3 à 5 millions d'années par l'accumulation de sable provenant du désert du Kalahari, charrié par la rivière Orange vers la mer, puis déposé au nord de la côte par le courant de Benguela.

Good Morning Gerard,

Awesome scene capture. The composition and the placemen of the died tree are impressive.
I am living some TN connection problems in these days. So sorry for short comment:(
TFS and have a nice day!
Cheers,

Hello Gerard,
Outstanding capture with exceptional clarity and details.
A typical African desert. Fantastic colours and wonderful composition with that treee on the left side of the image.
Marius.

Vert nice Gerard. A beautiful area for landscapes. Good composition and POV. I spend two days there last year and the red dunes of the Kalahari desert are inviting me back in August this year.
Well done and TFS

Hello Gerard,
lovely capture of this dramatic scenery of a desert. The dead tree is really an element full of impact. The red snad is really wonderful to note.
Well seen with scarce green bushes.
nice composition of the desert view.

Foozi

Rebonjour Gérard,
Une image très fine de ces paysages typiques des déserts namibiens. L'angle de vue est bien choisi, l'image bien mise en scène avec la présence de l'arbre mort à gauche. Magnifiques ocres aussi.
Amicalement
Anne

Excelente situación de los diferentes elementos Gerard.
Buena luz y atractiva gama de colores.
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

Hello Gerard,
The landscape captured here by your superb camera work is truly beautiful. Great work Gerard.
Rick

Nice landscape shot. The lonely tree with the sand dune in the bg looks wonderful. Good colours too. May be a more bluish sky would have looked even better. Thanks for sharing.

Victor

Bonjour Gérard,
Incredible shot. This is exactly the way how those people who never saw it imagine desert. Beautiful composition and sharpness - although probably I should have composed the tree into the right third, not into the left, due to its curve. Everything else is more than great. Bravo.
Friendly regards, László

Bonjour Gérard,

Magnifique cette photo qui me donne encore plus envie d'aller visiter cette région...
Belles couleurs dans cet environnement aride. L'arbre mort est une élément important de cette photo. En se plaçant un peu plus à gauche, on aurait pu éviter le petit groupe d'arbres verts coupés ici. Mais rien de bien méchant.

Une photo qui fait rêver!

Salutations,
Odile

Salut Gerard,
congratulations, perfect composition. Great colourful landscape.
TFS.

Roland
