Photographer's Note

I always wanted to see the dunes and I had the chance when we stopped for the night at Erfoud. The dunes trip was an optional treat. Of course when we got there, a little later than other groups of tourists, the dunes were scarred with footprints and punctuated along the ridges by dozens of tourists. It was hard to take a shot which payed homage to such beauty, especially as the sun descended over the horizon.

I turned towards our drop off point and far to my right I saw this man apparently heading to the Bedouin type of camp, or should I say Tuareg. The blue men of the desert are no longer blue, wearing as they do the cheap imported cloth rather than the natural dyed ones which tinted their skin blue.
All in all, despite the numerous visitors, one still gets the impression of what dunes are all about. Thank goodness the place did subdue the urge to yell and fool around- it was a silence generated by deep respect of such natural wonder.
