Every effort on this Gallery site has been made to accurately represent the vibrant colours of Sam’s images. Due to differences in computer screens and certain other variations, the images here should only to be taken as a guide. Obviously, the colour and sharpness of a finished print are far superior to what can be presented on a small screen.
Layered Mountain Namib Desert
$210.00 – $2,700.00
Driving through the Namib desert it’s hard not to take thousands of pictures as the landscape changes often, so picking ones to put on this website was quite challenging. I selected this as I love the layers in the mountain it has quite an etherial effect. Of course shooting it isn’t easy when you’re travelling on a bumpy road but it’s a skill i now have worked on.
The Namib is a desert on the west coast of southern Africa. It stretches more than 1,250 miles (2,000 kilometers) between the city of Namibe in Angolanand the Olifants River in South Africa. The largest part of the Namib is in the country of Namibia. The western part of the Namib borders the Atlantic Ocean. The Orange River cuts through the southern Namib as it flows to the Atlantic. The landscape of the Namib Desert features gravel plains, shifting sand dunes, and scattered mountains. The sand dunes of the Namib can reach a height of 1,000 feet (300 meters), making them some of the tallest sand dunes in the world. The Namib gets almost no rain. Along the coast, however, there is often dense fog. The cooling sea breeze keeps temperatures along the coast quite cool.
