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.

The only place in the world where sand dunes meet the ocean. 42 km south of Walvis Bay Sandwich Harbour is situated. The name Sandwich Harbour refers to the former harbour as well as the lagoon. Today Sandwich Harbour is of touristic interest and does not refer to the forgotten harbour, but solely to the lagoon. The lagoon used to be an oceanic bay and was reachable from the coast. As the bay silted up the 10 km long lagoon is now surrounded completely by sand and reeds. The main attraction of the lagoon is the incredible abundance of birdlife and the attractive landscape of contrasting sea and dunes. The huge bird colony is home to some 200,000 birds mainly terns, flamingos, cormorants and pelicans.
