Skelton Coast, Namibia, Africa

That landscape photograph shows pastel colors. All colors cohesively merge along in the dunes. A sea of sand, the soft waves of the dunes form gentle patterns throughout the sand gives this photograph a dreamy look.

Dunes in pastel colors. The translucent colors all cohesively merge along the dunes of Namibia. The light is creating soft blues, purples, and pinks. Amongst the elegant colors, there are waves of dunes forming gentle patterns throughout the sea of sand. Namibia is for me a playground to create desert dunes art photo prints.

Skeleton Coast Namibia In Pastel Colors

South of the Skeleton Coast Park is the National West Coast Tourist Recreation Area. That forms a part of the Skeleton Coast Park. That is an exclusive coastal stretch of about 180 km from the Ugab mouth to Walvis Bay and Swakopmund. In the year 2010, this area was integrated into the new Dorob National Park. This area is freely available for tourists.

Because of the richness of fish, this coastal stretch is heaven for anglers. Not only do the anglers enjoy the fish, but it is also the staple diet for the Cape Fur Seal. They occur in large numbers along the eastern coast, where they form enormous colonies. One of the largest colonies inhabits the area called Cape Cross. Undoubtedly an unforgettable impressive experience.

A pastel color we define as a high value of lightness and a low veto medium saturation. As they are less vibrant than primary colors, they are more soft, light, and calming. Indeed the dunes in pastel colors bring a soft dreamy look to this harsh environment.

    Reminds me of cotton candy! The pinks and purples make it feel like I’ve stepped into candyland.
