Taken in the early morning as the sun rises over our desert camp. We spent a wonderful night here sleeping under the stars. Got to this place by camel power for about an hour and a half ride from the small town of Merzouga.
Some of the dunes here can reach up to 160m.

Hi Wanda. back in your favourite undulating world. Great colours in all their subtle shades.There is a strong sense of isolation. Regards. Klaudio.

heel mooi al die lagen met net verschillende helderheid en kleur die langzaam lijken op te lossen in de roze lucht.

160 meters, oh so very high! They don't look like this, surely. Very good photo of this dry and sandy corner of the world.

Absolute stunning light and mood you captured here. Everything is just perfectly place. Love the layers of sand dunes. Beautiful light and color of the sunset, like a scene from a movie. Thanks.

This view which has a good depth is very relaxing to the eye with its soft morning colors! I like the way you've presented it with the sun well positioned!

Beautiful composition of dnes. The early morning light looks amazing and the layer of dunes have been captured nicely. The sign of foot prints on the sand are old but still very attarctive idea.
Thanks for sharing.

beautiful calm in your photo, perfect how you capture the early morning in the desert! I like the way everything seems to be a different shade of mauve/beige. Nice sharpness and great dof. Excellent work!
Thanks and take care,

a nice one! The sun looks great and the atmosphere is nice and quiet.
Beautiful shhot, you sure took advantage of the lovely early morning light, you placed the sun perfectly off center and I like the vastness of these dunes, great shot!

Hello Wanda! I just saw Babel (the film) which was partly filmed in Marocco, so Marocco is still on my mind and this great film of course. What a beautiful photo, what a wonderful first light, what an experience to sleep in the desert, I have never done that before. An elegant picture, full of harmony with the rolling sand dunes as far as we can see and the sun coming up, still seeming weak but I guess this was changing fast, filling this place with boiling heat. Great photo! Merry Christmas, Wanda, best regards, Barbara.
