Getaway (South Africa) - - PHOTOGRAPHY -

This image was taken at 7.45am near Sand­wich Har­bour, south of Walvis Bay, at the end of a four-day desert pho­to­graphic sa­fari in the Namib. The vari­a­tion of tex­tures, colours and shapes was amaz­ing, turn­ing ev­ery scene into an ab­stract paint­ing in the morn­ing and evening light. What ap­peals to me most is the con­trast be­tween the straight lines and the soft­ness of the sand, ac­cen­tu­ated by the strips of light and shadow. I use a tri­pod even when there is enough light so that I can fine-tune my fram­ing (I like to per­fectly frame my pic­tures in-cam­era in­stead of in post).

Equip­ment Nikon D700, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8, Man­frotto tri­pod, ISO 200, f/8, 1/350 sec
