Hi. Thanks a lot that you like my pic :-) I know the place very well, because I was there several times. Stand up very very early in the morning and wait for the right moment, just after Sunrise then the light is perfect. Thanks again for your like. Rudi

Behind The Lens

Location
“The photo was taken in the Namib Desert, Sossusvlei, Namibia!”
Time
Very early in the morning. Left my Campsite at Sesriem around 04.00 in the morning. Drove close to 1h to get to the Parking Area at Sossusvlei. Packed my Camera, Lenses and Tripod in my Backpack and walkedd for about 30min in the sand to get to this place. Just on time to get the picture with the first Sunrays.
Lighting
Very early in the morning or late evening - close to Sunset is the best time to take pictures at Sossuvlei. Sunrise and Sunset is very intensive and the sand is "glowing".
Equipment
Canon 7D MarkII Canon 16-35mm Lense with Manfrotto Tripod.
Inspiration
The Namib Desert for me is one of the intensest places nature can share. Brilliant shapes and shades during Sunset and Sunrise. The Sound of Silence in the Dunes is spectacular.
Editing
A bit of color grading in lightroom was enought for that picture.
In my camera bag
My Canon 7D MarkII, Lenses 16-35, Tamron 24-70, 70-200mm and for Wildlife photography my Sigma 150-600mm!
Feedback
Southern Africa - Namibia is a great country for photographing Nature and Wildlife. Easy to travel, lovely and nice people. Love to stay out in the wild. If you like to do this go very early in the morning or late evening (best light)!
