Land sailing, also known as sand yachting or land yachting, is the act of moving across land in a three-wheeled vehicle powered by wind through the use of a sail. The term comes from analogy with (water) sailing. Historically, land sailing was used as a mode of transportation or recreation. Since the 1950s it has evolved primarily into a racing sport.

The distinct green, orange and black features create a fascinating spectacle, and the effect is greatly enhanced by the impressive background. This is a well captured scene with perfect exposure and great sharpness.

This is one the mode of transport I have not had a chance to witness myself. That looks like great fun and no doubt they can go fast. Desert is a natural place for such sport. You timing wasn't quite optimal as one vehicle partially covers another.

A successful shot under the blue sky with high colour contrast, a real visual feast indeed when the sea of sand is littered with brightly colourful surfers drawing attention. What a awesome sight to watch and feel of depth emphasised by shallow dof and a bit of pale background boosting the colour intensity very well. Lovely compo, smoothness and your exposure controlled is so seamless, Congrats

Fine stop-action image of the land sailors zooming around the dry sea bed, with a dramatic mountain backdrop.
I windsurf, and have been curious about purchasing a long-board skateboard and mounting one of my sails on it, and attempting land sailing.
Thanks for sharing,

The hazy blue mountains make a nice backdrop as well as contrasting against the slightly reddish yellow fg. I like the flattened perspective from the zoom. Good sharpness and the wind-sailors make a fine focal point. Good how the black one is framed by the 2 green and white ones. Tfs!

Windy conditions raised dust on the hot air, very notable on this desert scene, Eleu.
Fine clarity, and the land-sailing vhicles in excelent vivid colors.
Impressively taken shot.
