that definitely ain't me on that ridge. fat guys shouldn't be out in that sort of heat.
you have caught the mood very nicely. the burning sand is emphasised by the blueness of the sky.

OHHHHHHHH not only is it killer hot, just standing still, if you try and walk in SAND it's even worse! Oh yes, people could die real quick out in this! Beautiful shot Hansie! Love the ridge here, it's super nice and sharp!

Nice pic Hans - it was hot enough in the winter in Sossusvlei during daylight, so summer must be a belter... I bet they're English - you know the saying "mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun" :-)
Great colour, really like the harsh look to the place.. Great view of the Namib!!

De twee gekken zijn wel goed voor de maatvoering, de foto is mooi scherp, de kleuren zijn mooi.
De schaarse begroeiing leid je de foto in.
Je lens is trouwens ook niet verkeerd!

Magnifique image de ce désert.
Les couleurs sont superbes.
J'espčre que ses deux personnes en haut de la dune ne sont pas perdu.

Haha great shot! I love it! What a place. I can imagine you, laden with camera gear, determinedly tackling everything this arid land threw at you ... despite the heat.
Great sense of scale thanks to the figures on top of the dune, good composition and a solid demonstration in the effective use of aperture.
So--- I hope you were in a vehicle?? This is a beauty. Excellent color tones/contrasting blue sky and nice strong details. Well done ! TFS Julie

A nice desert shot with marvellous sand dunes adorned with fabulous warm lighting. Nice play with shadows and beautiful color tones.
Nice contrast with the blue sky. The presence of the human element makes us compare the vastness of this desert.
A very sharp image, neatly presented.

Nice one, the dunes are always eyecatching and the sand saturated colour looks great under the blue sky.
The small bushes in foreground add a nice touch and the two 'mosquitos' on top of the dune are necessary to understand the scale.
Good DOF thru the f/16

Hello Hans, beautiful shot my friend, the colors are just awesome! The presence of the lunatics is a big plus to show the scale. Very well done, thanks!
