Photographer's Note

Rock formations are practically non-existent along Namibia’s coastline. The sea and sand meet and beach and desert flow from one to the other in a continuous line from the southern to northern boarders.

Garnetiferous sands tint the beach purple-pink and remnants of dead jelly fish help create patterns as the tide recedes.

This shot was taken at Long Beach which is situated between the coastal towns of Swakopmund and Walvis Bay. The 1500 km coast of Namibia is wild and largely untouched but here the beach is easily accessible and is a favourite spot for fishing and relaxing. The drive along this section of coastal road never ceases to enthral; the tall dunes reach down almost to the waves leaving a narrow strip of flat land where the road runs between sea and dune.
