Here are some images that I finally got around to processing this morning. Let's see, I was last in Namibia in September, which was 6 months ago. Crazy that I really haven't done much processing of my images since then, as Gura Gear has taken a ton of my time as of late. All of the following images were taken from a Cessna Caravan above the Namib desert, Namibia. All images are with the Canon 1DsMkIII body with a 24-105mm f/4 L IS lens. Processed and toned all inside of Lightroom.
I am a huge fan of images with a deep black, as I think this helps create a sense of drama. Maybe it is because Ansel Adams was a great practitoner of the entire tonal range, I don't know, but his work has influenced how I approach black and white landscape photography. I have put together an entire portfolio of black and white sand dunes in Namibia, and may offer these images in a portfolio box that is similar to the other two that I announced a few weeks ago.
