we had the pilot take the door off the plane so we didnt have to shoot thru windows. Best one hour flight of my life .. it was like shooting fish in a barrel :) I know there is no sense of scale, the Namib boast the tallest dunes in the world !

It really seems a view from another planet. Very beautiful shot of this desert. The soft warm colours are very well captured.
Only one puntualisation, maybe having include something as a reference (foot steps, rock,...), to see better the real dimension of the dunes and the landscape of this desert.
Very good job. rgds Don!

Interesting shot Don,
I wouldn't like to get stuck there. What altitude were you flying at when you got this shot?
The shadows look awesome.
Great shot, thanks for posting
