In this areal photograph, beautiful patterns show in the red sand dunes. They decorate the arid landscape in a sea of lines. Undoubtedly untouched inland from the Namibian coast. The horizon line is framed by a gorgeous pale blue of the cloudless sky in this areal photograph. The scorching sun is radiating heat everywhere, making the desert extremely hot. The red appearance of the sand also adds warmth to the environment.
Especially the Skeleton Coast is a real sight to behold with its red dunes. Indeed, a rare place in which the desert meets the sea. It stretches 500 kilometers between the old German colonial town of Swakopmund and the Angolan border. This coast is virtually uninhabited and thoroughly untamed. Another unbelievable sight to behold is to see the Desert lions and other predators wandering the shoreline for any animals to eat. Eleven shark species swim in the waters along the coast. Elephants will also enjoy a dip in the sea from time to time. They take a welcomed break from the heart of the red sand dunes to swim in the refreshing sea water.
