Do not litter - it is very important message. We were astonished to see how eco-friendly Namibia is. The tours are so organized that the water is not wasted unnecessarily, on campsites there were big colourful bines for recycling or we took our garbage with ourselves. It should be like this everywhere.

It makes a refreshing amount of sense for a country so reliant on its natural resources to be correspondingly serious about the environment, and yet it is so rare. Great to hear about this emphasis. You back it up nicely with this image, showing Namibia's beautiful environs being protected by the prominent sign. Gorgeous oranges here - I hope someday I'm able to see sand like this, so incredibly bright and vibrant.

There have been many pictures here on TE from this area and most of them show the sand dunes and the dead trees. Most scenes are very clean and sterile and now we can see a reason for this. Here you show us another part interesting part of this desert, the sign and the regulations. There are also sand dunes and dead trees here,but in a different context. A fine and well composed picture, with a message!

The bare tree offers a strong focal point with the "Do not litter" sign an thoughtful counterpoint. I am surprised there is an eco-friendly atitude, but rather surprising in this desolate area of the world. The mounds of sand rising in the background are disconcerting. The desert it seems will grow and grow, if unchecked.
Regards from CJ.

The 'Do not Litter' notice is good, but the photograph itself has depth and clarity.
There are a wide variety of shades of brown and orange.
The change of shades with the change in distance is very interestingly captured.
The stumps in the forground forms a good base for the composition, and thereafter our vision extends to the reddish brown hills in the background.
The green trees do look sharp and bright and so pleasing to the eye, in this landscape.
The two leaf less trees that have been taken with good sharpness and balances the composition.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful shot, Malgo.

Yes, I quite agree - some members of the human race can sometimes be so disgusting with all the litter and rubbish they leave around. Not far from here there are a few road junctions where cars have to wait at traffic lights and the sides of the road are littered with cigarette butts, Coke cans, cigarette packets and all sorts of filth and junk that people have thrown from their cars. Nice to see, though, that Namibia has "got its act together" and is managing to stamp out this disgusting habit.
And here, not a scrap of litter in sight! Beautiful warm reds and oranges in those dunes with the dead trees and sparse dry vegetation making a fine foreground against a pale blue sky. Lovely colours, good composition, perfect exposure and wonderful details and sharpness.

As often in Namibia the scenery is stunning, but above all this photo is interesting from what the sign shows and what you describe in the note. It is unfortunately far more common, especially in poor developing countris but also in Europe, that scenic places are so full of litter that the joy of being there is almost lost.

You composed this capture very cleverly, making sure that the sign is graphically fully integrated in the frame. Lov' those red tones -it's a beautiful landscape. And so good to see that there's eco-policy that's actually succesful implemented and enforced.
Warm regards from Rotterdam - have a fine day!

Red dunes that are a "trademark" of Namibia, well taken picture over, Malgo.
In a secoond look I recon there are at least 4 different red soil colors. This mix created an outstanding view on the location.
Have a nice sunday afternoon,
