Galleria Winner: David Kooijman

Swakopmund, Namibia
Canon 6D, Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS, f/18, blended exposures, ISO 100

These dunes are just outside Swakopmund in Namibia. Some people get there just to watch the sunset, others go dune boarding, and I was there to create images.

The landscape feels like the waves of the ocean continue on land but are transformed from water to sand. Like waves in the ocean, the dunes change all the time with the wind. It’s an exploration every time.

With the sun being low on the horizon, the colour of the ocean and the dunes becomes similar. It seems like the sky, the ocean and the sand melt together into one massive expanse.

I used exposure bracketing to capture detail in the dunes and the sky. I used the HDR module from Nik's Collection to put the 5 exposures together and finished the post-processing in Lightroom CC.
