This stunning photo of camel thorn trees was made during the Namibian dawn when the warm light of the morning sun was illuminating a huge red sand dune dotted with white grasses while the white floor of the clay pan was still in shade. The foregroud looks blue because the white clay reflected the color of the sky above.

Because of the extreme contrast between the shady foreground and the sunlit background Frans used a two-stop graduated filter to reduce the contrast. The perfect moment came just as the sun reached the bottom of the sand dune and before it washed the desert floor.

Frans chose a long telephoto lens and stopped it all the way down to compress the perspective. The image was captured using a Nikon D3X camera mounted to a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 lens exposing ISO 100 for 1/10 of a second at 200mm f/22.
