20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Namib Desert Early Morning

I was walking up a dune in the early morning, May 30th 2022 The colors were intense due to a winter like sun that we see in November in the Northern Hemisphere. Just used my Lee Polarizer to protect my lens en to intensify the light and adjust the light falling over the distant dunes. Shadows produced hard edges. The wind over the dunes was just beginning to blow. It gives this gentle texture of sand which is blowing over the lower hills. Wonderful to be there... I will return!
