The Namib Naukluft Park is one of the largest national parks in Africa, covering much of the central Namib Desert and the Naukluft Mountains. It is home to some of the rarest and weirdest plant and animal species in the world, including the Welwitschia Mirabilis, large lichen fields and Hartmann's Mountain Zebra. The park's main attractions are Sossusvlei, Sandwich Harbour and the Naukluft hiking and four wheel drive trails.
The park is a combination of the Namib Desert Park and the Naukluft Mountain Zebra Park as well as sections of the Diamond Area the area of the park is just under 50 000 square kilometers.
Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert is the one attraction that should not be missed while you are in Namibia, the dunes are amazing and even though this is a popular tourist destination it is still easy to gain a sense of solitude while climbing one of the dunes or walking to dead or hidden vlei.
The Namib Desert section of the Namib-Naukluft park includes the Swakop and Kuiseb River canyons. For people wanting to experience a sense of Namibia's vastness a few nights at one of the camp site at Kuiseb Bridge, Homeb, Mirabib, Bloedkoppie, Ganab, Vogelfederberg or Kriess-se-Rus should prove to be very exhilarating. All of these camp sites offer very basic facilities, and as they do not have receptions or shops (or even game wardens) they must be booked in advance.

Hi Aivar, great POV the relief of the sand makes the foreground very interesting, amazing how many views are possible in such a desert. The colours are a bit flat but maybe its not the real red colour we often see. Well done. Reina

Hi Aivar,

I love your photo. The sharpness is stunning from front to back. I especially like the sharp ridges and simple lines of those far dunes. Nice color, saturation and use of polarizer; not overdone. It's a lovely photo.


Evelynn : )

Hi Aivar,
Fantastic capture of this beautiful landscape, perfectly composed with good light, nice colours and great textures.
Really good shot!

Hello Aivar,
Interesting lines and superb details in this desert scenery!
A fine well balanced composition, topped by a beautiful blue sky!
Pablo -

Superb post and the framing is spot on - well done

WOW - I have to say that the detail visible is absolutley stunning and the composition is excellent.

Excellent and nicely done.


Hi Aivar,
What a stunning photo with such great sharpness throughout the photo. The different layers of colors in the sand a beautiful. So are the shapes in the sand. Great job on the colors in the sky. (PP work?)

Bonjour Aivar,
F駘icitations pour cette photo d'un d駸ert dont on n'entend pas parler souvent.
J'aime beaucoup votre prise de vue presqu'au ras du sol, ce qui donne une jolie touche de graphisme, cr饌tion de la nature. Tr鑚 bonne profondeur de champ. Ouverture et temps d'exposition tr鑚 point.


Hallo Aivar,

This is a spectacular landscape. I admire your eye. The composition, patterns and colours are so nice. Very well done!


Dramatic landscapes Aivar. Very well captured. Good one.

Hi Aivar,

This looks amazing. The sanddunes in the background are absolutely great and the colors and light in this picture are perfect. I would really love to go to a desert myself once in my life. Details are exellent too, especially in the sand on the fg. Well done & TFS!


Aivar, this is a very lovely lanscape.
It is clystal clear and creates a beautiful atmosphere. It is pleasant but strong at the same time.
I like it very much, congratulations.

Hi Aivar,
Beautiful stark landscape. Great quality light here. Amazing subtle colors. The detail is sharp, and the textures in the sand ifn the foreground really enhance this shot. Looks great!

What strikes me first about this image is how real it looks. Sounds a funny thing to say but it looks like I'm looking through a window to the actual place. I guess the sharpness of the photo and the lack of noise have a lot to do with it. It's also superbly composed and exposed. Well done.

Hi Aivar!

Great shot!!

Thanks, Enrico.
