after the rains in the Namib. Late evening light and plenty of water made for some decent shooting :)

Directly added to my favorites. Shot is really fantastic. Very hard to accept nature is able to give us such a beautifull view, is there any effect for the Background? !!!! Well well done, surely want some more.

Amazing colours - quite surreal in its intensity. Like a Dali landscape (but without the melting clocks etc).
Guenther (10915) 2005-01-24 9:44
wow, are these colours real?? almost unbeleavable and the water is almost not recognisable as such if there were not the reflections ... just great!!

Ok we all recognize the Red Planet. Nice try :)

There's not too much to say, just a wonder of our world, and I'm happy you've been there.. with your camera :)

unreal, magic, great - there is hardly any better place in the world for taking outstanding pictures (like that) than the Namib..

Amazing colours and composition. It's interesting to have the contrast of the sand in the middle of the shot to break up the red sand. Very nice capture.

Fantastic. The best TE photo I've seen in a while.

So deep ! Courbs are very harmnious, but colors are the main part of the picture, so deep and weel contrasted, very luminous, well done

Outra composição e cores fantásticas. Magnífica!

Amazing memorable image!
jbweasle (9393) 2005-12-20 4:38
Don, this is fabulous. Great curves and colour. I have seen a lot of pictures of the Namib Desert but this is the first where the dunes are reflected in the river. It's an exceptional shot.

Wow, it's Namibia, but I could believe this picture was taken in Mars. Phantastic ans surrealistic image! Regards.
archanabhimasen (270) 2006-01-13 4:46
Awesome shot. Very dramatic. Hard to believe its nature's creation.
Dr_Nibbles (283) 2006-01-13 5:13
Wow man, all of your photos are fricking amazing, you're gonna be entered as one of my fav photographers!!!
Bout this one in particular, amazing colours, good composition, good shades. How long did you wait for the sun to settle like this or were you just lucky to be there at the right moment. When looking at your other photos, I assume you waited for the very light.
TomekWalkiewicz (233) 2006-01-20 8:37
Fantastic picture. Colors are beautiful...wow
siolaw (38292) 2006-03-11 16:46

Don Martel ,
Very well done.
gilad33 (14400) 2006-10-05 7:47
This is overwelming
rui_seabra (205) 2006-10-18 5:52
Decent is far from the correct word to describe the work you did.
Appart from the grain easily spotted in the shadow areas (don't know if the image is scanned as some others you posted) it is really great.
Albrecht (11281) 2006-11-15 9:20
Marvellous and very impressive picture.well captured moment there. The red colour and the shadows are beautiful.
marioana (2256) 2006-12-23 7:17
One of the most beautiful pics I've seen in ages. Everything just works right. The angle for reflection, the light, the time of day. Awesome. Merry Christmas.
pongman (172) 2007-01-18 8:17

This is an a-ma-zing shot! Are you sure you didn't use photoshop? ;-)
This is very very beautiful and I'll also add it to my favourites. Have to say, perhaps I should consider going back to Africa...
Good one! Dennis
andrepelletier (544) 2007-02-09 9:04
Stunning reflection landscape.
I love this picture with incredible colors.
You have made a nice trip on Mars?

What an absolutely stunning shot!, Amazing Colours & reflection!
belido (19934) 2007-04-28 11:24
that's a beautiful shot! The reflections on the water, the color - everything works well.
Wandering_Dan (3449) 2007-09-14 19:52
An excellent capture of shape, color and light. And an unusual perspective on the Namib! (Lucky, too, since it almost never rains there.)
romanaa (7984) 2007-12-29 4:50
your picture is simply beautiful, unbelievable landscape.

ilghiz (708) 2008-04-19 2:11
I think this photo belongs to TrekMars, not TrekEarth! Astonishing red and wonderful reflection! How come there's water on Mars?
