Photographer's Note

The Namib is one of the oldest deserts in the world and has the world's tallest and largest dunes (several hundred meters tall). This shot is of the more popular Dune 45 - noted because it was the 45th dune during a decades-old survey and one dune that is frequently climbed. It is also on the 45 km of the Namib park although my guide book states that is just a coincidence.

I stitched several photos together to create the panorama and then converted to black and white to show the texture of the sand more clearly. The climbers (my kids) help show some perspective of scale.
