Photographer's Note

So as to complete my first dune shot and the camel ride picture, I present a great angle view of this magnificent place : the Chebbi Erg at sunset near Merzouga, close to the Algerian border. I guess I was aiming at north-east.

No strong subject this time – I’m aware of that. My purpose is humble today : share this desert view to let you better imagine the place where I took the previous one. A kind of rear travelling 

As told before, I was only mid-way to the top of the highest dune of Merzouga, not even on the top and I was already amazed by the vastness of the place, the beauty of the sun reflection on the sand. That was a wonderful moment and I really need to go back for more days in such a desert.

Like the previous picture, I needed to adjust the gamma balance so as to restore the original sunset tones. That’s all. I hope the picture didn't suffered too much of the strong compression...
