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.

A very dynamic this pictire with motion of the land-sails, Eleu.
Desert scenery with lot's of mist above ground, and maybe a result of the flatl land to the distance.
Fine mix of diff. colors of those sails.
My best regards,

A highly dynamic action image must be a great place for sand surfing with lovely sense of freedom as well. I love the feel of vastness with good hint of the bg. Focus is great, it's well frozen, full of vibrant colours and the exposure control is just seamless. The overall contrast is so eye catching! An immense capture, Congrats.

Also at the Belgian coast is these sport very popular, one place about 10 kilometres is the beach perfect, when is much wind, drive these small sailers 100 kolometre / h
Nice perspective and depth picture.
A wonderful panoramic view about these area.
Composition and presentation be superb.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Fine view of these desert dry lake sailors in action. The sails are always colorful and perhaps the main attraction?
I would like to try land sailing someday, in the meantime I am stuck with sailboats and windsurf boards.
Thanks for sharing,
