A further two hour trip through the old river valley brought the dunes over the horizon, more and more magnificent in their fluctuating colors as sunlight played across their undulations.
Dunes are numbered and named. The plains and Naukluft mountains are viewed from high on number 45 Elim Dune.
The elevated view seems unnecessary.
This is the beginning of the oldest and highest dunes in the world.
The dunes shift and change shape in the ever changing in the light.
300 meters of sand means that scale is deceptive.
