Who said a sunset is only about the sun? What I love about this particular moment of the day is the light. Photographically speaking, together with sunrise, sunset is the best time to take photos: everything turns golden and the shadows are long and interesting, and I like to include them in my frames.
So last week when I was in the Wadi Rum (a desert in the south of Jordan) I was waiting for the sunset on a little sand dune… when suddenly I noticed the beauty of the unique textures that the wind forged in the red sand.
Here is how a sunset in the Wadi Rum looks like… from the sand’s point of view! Enjoy.
Have you ever watched the sunset in the desert? Are you a sunset lover like me? I am curious to hear about your desert experiences!
This is a really clever post, Giulia. I love the photos. Yes, I’ve seen the sun set in the desert, as I lived in a desert for 6 years in New Mexico, plus for several months in Dahab. I’m not a desert lover at all, but there is truly a lot of beauty there.
