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.
Mars meets Namib desert
$210.00 – $2,700.00
The roads in Namibia and Africa in general are frustrating. You get to see some amazing landscapes. This is near the Kuiseb river and felt like I was on another planet.
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.
