On our way towards Sesriem, Namibia, to see the magical sand dunes of Sossusvlei, we came across to unworldly scenes in the Namib Desert, were not telegraph lines by the roads.
The lyrics of Dire Straits' Telegraph Road echoed in my ears:
A long time ago came a man on a track...
walking thirty miles with a sack on his back...
Cropped,increased brightness, contrast and saturation, applied gradual toning & Neat Image.

Good Morning Erdem - I like the shot, it encapsulates the experience of the Namibian 'road-trip' very well - endless miles of road with virtually no sign of human presence bar the fences and telegraph poles. The colours are soft and lovely and the format and composition underline the never-ending journeys! Warm regards Rosemary
