I felt like I am in the middle of nowhere here but defnitiely 'somewhere' north of Agadez in Niger.
This place and experience of being there, almost convinced my that our planet is truly FLAT. Absolute solitude and calmness.
It was difficult to find any wood for our bon fire in the evening or any intimacy for a bathroom brake ;). The only thing surrounding us was sand, wind and sky.

Nice shot, Krzysztof. Well balanced colors, good composition and mood. I see what the "African feel" might be :)
Keep traveling, shooting and posting!

Bezmiar bez ko0ńca, wspaniała panorama pełna gorącego piasku. Super. Pozdrawiam

This is a charming and delightful image. The signs of habitation dwarfed by the vastness of the desert make me smile. The frame is nicely divided between the delicious warm earth and the cool sky and the encampment is perfectly placed.

Theme: Wielkopolska landscape?
I like it, but again I feel disturbed by strange blur I can see in you pictures.Look at the bush far away, or this strange thing between tent and car, and the stones , all kind of hazy. I dont know if its shallow DOF, rather some scanning problem or something, but you'd better do sth about cos it wrecks otherwise good pics
Oh, horizon should be even, i think

Nice photo of this fantastic place. I love desert like nomanland. But it must be pretty hard to live there, with no shadow, no water ....

Very good color contrast of blue and gold. And that tiny jeep. Very good pic my friend.

A great empty shot of nothing. Sometimes the hardnest one to capture!

hehe, jak w Mickiewiczu: "jedźmy nikt nie woła" :O)
ale piękny płaski kawał ziemi, tylko jedziesz i jedziesz a horyzont wciąz tak daleko

Simple yet effective, I would hate to have the jeep braekdown at a desolate place like this. I don't really get the connection to Wielkopolska though.
