Salut Pierre,une image qui souvien moi le rouge desert du Maroc,quel lieu parfait pour des belles photos,magnifique composition et qualite' des details et couleurs! Mes compliments et belle journee',Luciano

Impressive place and beautiful scene Pierre! Good composition, wonderful soft colours and good sharpness.

Hello Pierre,
This image puts me into a very sad mood. Being in civilization and seeing this absolute beautiful desert landscape is a privilege my friend!! You captured the Gemsbuck in the foreground perfectly against the great moving dunes of Sossusvlei.
Best regards,

Hello Pierre,
this is an excellent shot. The beauty of the desert is simply stunning. The lines, the shapes and the lighting is dream.
The presence of he animal is making this shot more meaningful and exciting.
Very well presented in lively style.


Hi there!
I like this pic - Namibia in one shot! Good colours, lovely light and dark interplay, thoughtful composition. Well done!

Hello Pierre - Really fascinating to me! Personally I like African Landscape as well as its animal very much and here the way you have captured this Sand dunes with a Gemsbok in the middle of the frame looks attractive. Very nice POV. Tree is also looking beautiful here just right side of the GEMSBOK. Thanks for sharing your work with us. Regards - Srikumar
