Photographer's Note

Dunes in the middle of a rather rocky environment, in the South of Algeria, in the region named Tadrart (Sahara).

As you can see, trees manage to survive there in spite of the desert around, which can be surprising when you know that the average pluviometry in the Algerian Sahara is only 89 millimeter per year...

But the dune seems to be moving forward and recovering the trees little by little.
