The Namib is one of the oldest deserts in the world and has the world's tallest and largest dunes (several hundred meters tall). This shot is of the more popular Dune 45 - noted because it was the 45th dune during a decades-old survey and one dune that is frequently climbed. It is also on the 45 km of the Namib park although my guide book states that is just a coincidence.
I stitched several photos together to create the panorama and then converted to black and white to show the texture of the sand more clearly. The climbers (my kids) help show some perspective of scale.

Beau panoramique sur cette gigantesque dune namibienne. Le noir et blanc est un chois intéressant et original.

A good idea to stitch many iamges to get this wide lanscape format, following the 2 trekkers on the dune ridge to discover this amazing landscape od sand.
Good light to have shadows giving the sense of depth, and a conversion in a soft B&W mood in order to have another vision.
Have a nice sunday

Hello, the panoramic view is great for this image giving us a sweeping landscape including the dune and the ones behind it. Lots of layers and excellent crisp sharpness.
Spectacular photo in all respects,
