I took this photograph looking south fron the jetty in Swakopmund, the sun was sinking and casting a soft light onto the sea. On the horizon you can see the Sea Fisheries building, this is where surf fishing licences are sold and ecological research is carried out by the government. It also houses an aquarium. On the beach you can see a sweep of heavy mineral sand which I have mentioned before (http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/Africa/Namibia////photo1292434.htm)

extraordinary colors. Great view. I like the red touch on the sand and the foam from the waves.
The building on the horizon together with the tree make a nice point of reference,
Have nice weekend,

les couleurs inhabituelles de cette scène en font tout son charme.
J'auime autant le beu dégradé du ciel , que ces teintes rougâtres de ce sable, qui se marient bien d'ailleurs.
Une scène avec beaucoup de profondeur.
