Sea of Sand


It's all about the light in a desert environment such as this. In the burning heat of midday with the sun high overhead, this scene is unremarkable due to the flat lighting and absence of shadow or texture. But during sunrise or sunset it becomes one of the most beautiful places on earth to shoot. Composing with care and keeping the sun at 90 degrees to the camera will allow every detail of this landscape to be accentuated.

Location: Erg Chebbi, Sahara Deset, Morocco
