[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
C'est l'un des salars du 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.

Bonjour Gérard,
Quel paysage impressionnant! Excellent idée de le présenter en format panoramique. Les couleurs sont stupéfiantes, presque irréelles. J'imagine qu'un tel spectacle doit provoquer beaucoup d'émotion. Bravo pour la performance d'avoir restitué cette splendeur, avec les couleurs, contrastes et nettetés appropriés (un collage de plusieurs photos?). Amicalement,
Catherine

Gérard : c'est une grande réussite...
Merci pour ce paysage si lointain, aux couleurs remarquables.
A bientôt
Laurent

Bonjour Gérard,

Amazing image of a very unusual landscape: the sand, salt, and dead shrubs give this picture a very eerie feeling.

Superb!

Ishi

Excellent presentation.
