[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
50 Kilometers of the Atlantic Ocean lies Sossusvlei.
It seems like a desert area, but there are sand dunes on a clay base. They are the tallest dunes in the world up to 300/350 meters.
The dead vlei is a dry lake with salt at the bottom.
Most of the dead camel thorn trees are standing there as testifies from better times, more than 600 years ago.
Different kinds of sand form all kind of colours from deep yellow till dark red.

Hello Peter,
Very attractive landscape photo with good composition, light and great colors. TFS

It's a classic shot. Well composed, although I would have given the trees a little more space to the right. The background is simple, which is OK because it's the colours which are the main feature here.

Dit is nog eens een uitzicht... plain and simple erg mooi.
Goede focus met de bomen en de heuvels, kan me voorstellen dat het nog best even zoeken is naar een voorgrond in deze zandbak maar het moet wel fantastisch zijn om er naar op zoek te zijn.
Bedankt voor de posting.
Groet reina

Hi Peter,
a classic view but well done.

Hi Peter,
Beautifully composed desert photo, the colors are incredible, so is sharpness. Probably, the dried trees are a bit too much on the right side, but this is just a personal thought. Breathtaking capture with awesome color gamut. Bravo.
Have a prosperous new year, friendly regards, László
