An interesting and clear view of this Namibian clay pan. I like the contrast of the bear landscape with the stunning blue sky and the composition including the old dead tree is great, especially in the beautiful lighting.
I fine image to end your 2008 series.
I wish you a happy and healthy 2009!
This landscape and its climate would have to be just about 'opposite' (if thats the right word) to what we have here.
Our rainfall is so high that wood begins to rot in just weeks here and bare land will become scrub of forest in just a few years.
(We've had about 5 days a week of rain for over six months now,so even three of four days of sunshine is something special here)
I still think I refer the climate here to the hotter and dryer North Island though.
Happy New Year,
Happy New Year and best wishes for 2009.... TFS
Happy Anthropological 2009 to you too and a good image...in the fairness of TN and to have an honest opinion..I think it is too good...Try to take a poor image next time..It might help:-)

The colours contrast well here,and the brilliant blue sky is very beautiful.
Well composed in an artistic manner.
The snag looks almost statuesque and makes a wonderful focal point.I like how you arranged it in the frame,and it cuts vertically across the flowing horizontal lines of the BG.
The clouds add a nice accent to the sky.

Great picture - simple but very graphique. The colour of the sand is amazing, and the square format works well with this composition.
Allereerst een geweldig goed en gezond 2009 toegewenst met veel mooie plaatjes.
Prachtige foto is dit. De contrasten in beeld en kleur zijn super. Vooral de dode stam en de lucht zijn opvallend. Ik krijg bijna weer de neiging om ook weer eens een foto van deze omgeving te gaan plaatsen. Heb je ook een vliegtocht gemaakt hier? Ik vond het een geweldige ervaring.
Groetjes maar weer,

Hi Annick, Happy New Year to you!
This is dream shot. Colours are so saturated, contrast between sky and desert is breathtaking. Excellent composition with dead tree which upper part reminds me vulture a little. Picture with real African soul!

Such saturated and contrasty colours produce a great graphical impact Annick, a powerful capture my friend, I'm sure those dead trunks will end as a petrified forest maybe a million years from now. TFS it indeed!

masmavi ve bulutlu gökyüzü altında kum tepesi ve ön taraftaki kuru dal kompozisyonu zenginleştirmiş ve orjinal bir çöl fotoğrafı oluşturmuş
bakış açısı ve renkler de oldukça hoş olmuş
