Sossusvlei Sand Dunes, Namibia

Landscape, Nature, Photography

One has to see to believe the extent of amazing sand dunes from Sesriem to Sossusvlei area. I took hundreds upon hundreds of photos of these incredibly beautiful sand dunes even from the moving bus on the bumpy gravel roads. I did post a few desert images on my blog during the tour in Namibia. As I got more time to go through more photos at home, I’d like to share some of these images:

And finally here is the image I like very much but honestly I don’t remember exactly where I took that. I do know it’s between Sesriem and Sossusvlei when we were allow to get off the bus.

      Thank you for stopping by my blog. I did not know anything about Namibia until I saw the sand dunes photos in the National Geographic magazine, right then I decided I should go there to see and photograph these amazing landscape.

    You have stunning photos! I love the bright orange of the sand with the bright blue in the sky. As I scroll down I keep replacing my favorite shot of your series. I am curious about the photo you liked the most. What do you like about this photo in particular?
