Unromantically named after the distance from Sesriem Canyon, Dune 45 is the most accessible dune to climb in this vast sea of red sand that covers over 32,000 square kilometers of western Namibia. This enormous expanse of dunes stretches from the southern Khoichab River to the northern Kuiseb River.
It is thought that the sand originated in the Kalahari Desert up to five million years ago and was swept down to Sossusvlei by the Orange River. Your struggle to the top is worth every step, views of the surrounding desert are spectacular. You may be lucky enough to see Oryx or Ostriches roaming across the sand below.

Hi Aivar,
fantastic view, beautiful colours of desert. I like the composition. Good work.
Rgs, Aleksander

Great and stong colours with great view!
Great POV, sharpness and details...
Thanks Ana:)

The beauty of this shot is beyond description, Aivar.
The red desert of Mamibia, no doubt, is one of the most colourful in the world, but it needs an eye like yours to "see" and capture its unique charm.
