[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On food of dune 45 in the Sossusvlei stands this acacia. Because of the sharp sunlight and the steep dune, the perspective disappears.
The tree is still alive, but for how long?

Hoi Peter,
Een prachtige foto met een zeer bijzonder perspectief. De sherpe schaduw en de achtergrond maken deze foto erg bijzonder. Natuurlijk is de kleur van de duin er spectaculair. De foto lijkt me ietsjes te licht vooral op de stam en takken.

I really like the concept and composition of this photo, Peter. It is just a bit overexposed and doesn't have quite the sharpness it needs to be really dramatic.

Evelynnn : )

Bizarre scene. I love the colour, but the note doesn't quite explain it to someone who's never seen dunes before.

Very different shot
