Photographer's Note

Here the sand desert of Namib starts, one of the oldest deserts of the world. Sand is there of an incredible ochre color. The Elim dune in Sesriem is the first dune of an immense series of dunes which extends on 60 km until Sossusvlei. This dune makes a hundred meters in height only whereas others, further, exceed the 300 meters. The Elim dune is visited because it is located very close to the campings. The evening, the shaving light, gives an incredible luminosity on the plain and the volcanic mountains which one can observe in the distance. The dune is partially covered with plants of the Oyats type of a pretty water green.
