Photographer's Note

We woke up before dawn to race to Sossusvlei's Dune 45, a pile of sand perfectly sculpted for the sunrise warrior. As the sun slowly rose, the dunes surrounding us ignited into a fantastic, glowing orange that is burned in my memory. From that dune, we drove to Deadvlei, shown here, a pan where rain water used to flow and collect. The area is now surrounded by sand. This particular day, the sparse clouds were ideal as they permitted a balanced mix of dynamic shadow and light across the dunes.
