We left the Liwa Resthouse early that morning and drove to the end of the desert road leading to the 287m-high Moreeb Dune which is great yet it was hard not to stop off along the way to enjoy the views, at one point where the panorama was too sublime to pass by we pulled over and managed to stray over some of the lower dunes and about mid-way along i asked my wife to walk toward the highest one so i could take a few photos of the wonderful landscape and her progress into it , thus the title of this one. Taken at 8.15 am , mid-December 2009 , Liwa Oasis , UAE .
F-8 , 1-250 , Iso 80 ,i used my old Sony ( a bridge camera ) for this photo , thank you all for looking !
