18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Dune 45 – Namib National Park

We arrived at the gates of the park in the dark and got into line like everyone else, waiting for the park to open. Our guide decided that if Dune 45 was too busy with tourists, that he would drive on to the next stop and come back later. This we did. Unfortunately, we were driving at speed and the truck had windows. I use a polariser in these situations, to try and eliminate glare from the glass, and always have my camera at the ready. This is the shot I managed to take from a vehicle on a very bumpy road.
