We make a break on our climbing to the top of Erg Chebbi dunes. A very welcome break to drink, breathe, calm our legs (climbing in sand is juste exhausting !) ... and enjoy the wonderful landscape. With such a end of day light the scene is even more beautiful ! Our guide Mohammed probably knows perfectly this view, but I think you never fed up with such a scenery !

L'exposition est bien maîtrisée, ce qui ne devait pas être évident avec cette zone à l'ombre au premier plan et les dunes au soleil dans le fond.
Tu as idéalement placé le guide dans la photo et profité du fait que son regard, que l'on devine, se perd vers l'arrière plan, ce qui a tendance à guider notre propre regard dans cette direction.

la tua serie di foto sul deserto è molto bella, ma questa la trovo veramente fantastica
Questo uomo sembra che stai guardando il mare, un mare di sabbia, il colore del suo vestito è perfetto contro il colore dello sfondo.
Bella e poetica immagine.

The colours, the lines and the dunes make here a wonderful image.
I can your note follow, climbing in the dunes is almost mountain climbing.
Lovely perspective and depth picture through your excellent choice of your angle.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

a pensive and beautiful study this. A shot that works because of the human involvement here and contrasts with the graceful and elegant curves of the landscape. The light is just exquisite and the atmosphere so tranquil. It is a wonderfully original and entrancing image. I love it!
Enjoy your weekend - B.

This is a beautifully seen and composed image, the mans clothing presents such a vivid royal blue against the equally royal gold of the ocean of sand. Crip and sharp, we can see every single line of the shapes of the dunes, and the light across the entire scene is magical. I am incredulous this shot does not have dozens more comments, its really beautiful.
All the best

Wow! What a shot! Absolutely wonderful one with a perfectly executed composition and great quality. Love the intensive and well saturated colors and charming play of light and shadows which are the key of your work. Well done! Bravo!

Le guide contemplatif est bien placé dans l'image. Comme tu le dis, comment se lasser devant un tel paysage!

amazing composition, the deep blue and orange immediately caught my eye. The play of light and shadow on the dunes is fantastic. Top notch quality and wonderful mood.
Thanks and all the best!
