    You have a great eye Dieter, I really like your comp and the contrasting colours and shapes. Beautiful country we live in. I admired this one on your Zenfolio portfolio :D

  • thanks for the lovely comment, Sylvia! it is indeed a beautiful country, with such an incredible diversity of environments. And thanks for taking the time to look through my Zenfolio collection as well :) I hope you found something of interest there, though I admit it needs a bit of a spring clean!

    Beautiful capture Dieter, I have been there in May, maybe we passed each other ;))

  • Thanks Jan. I wish I’d been there in May! But sad to say, I’m just getting some good value out of reprocessing a few older images :) Can’t wait to make it back out there though, it’s such a beautiful part of the world!

    Wonderful composition, Dieter. Such amazing colours!!

  • Thanks Mieke :) I don’t know if anyone other than me would notice the difference, but since I first printed this photo it’s taken three years more experience and ten minutes of processing to get it right…

    What a cracker of a composition ! Just love the roughness to this landscape – what wonderful contrasting colours. You did a great job here….Cheers x

  • thanks Ulla :) the half hour I spent in those dunes must be the most productive half hour of photography I’ve ever done! Would love to go back…
