Windy Dunes

February 23rd, 2010

This photo tells the story behind my shot of the sunrise on top of Dune45 in the Namib, the world's oldest desert. The wind constantly blows the sand over the edge of the dune, giving it its unique shape and keeping it in place. The wind blows equally often and strong from West and East, making the dune itself immovable. I was thrilled by the thought of how many millions of grains of sand are blown over the edge of this and all the other dunes in the desert every second. This photo captures a few of them in flight.

Canon EOS 40D, Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8, ISO 100, 1/640 second, 43mm, f/3.5. Post-processing in Adobe Lightroom 2. Finishing touches in Adobe Photoshop CS4.
