There are only a few moments each dawn where the natural sunlight lights the Sossusvlei Sand Dunes in the Namib Desert, Namibia. Finding a dune with a yin & yang contrast of light and shade with contrasting stunted trees in front was the first challenge in making this photograph. The second was being there at dawn on a morning where the atmosphere was clear enough to create the image. With no other humans within miles the morning was completely silent and reminded me of just how wild the desert can be. In an area which had not had rain for over 20 years it was amazing to see that there were still thriving plants and lots of small animals.
