High sand dunes in the Sahara (Erg Chegaga). Ruling winds have pushed the sand up over the loam underlay. This can be seen at the bottom left of the picture. In some places there is a subterranean water stream. That's where acacias grow. Once the sand dunes are high, they become higher and higher, with the sand dunes moving very slowly. Very Chegaga is a nice example of this in the Moroccan Sahara.

Good day, how nice of you to visit my profile in 'Work on the wall'!
I'd like to introduce myself.
I'm Elizabeth van Pelt-Verkuil, a photographer at heart.
I make high demands on the quality of my photos; also on the post-processing.
Photography is in my blood and many of my photos are about nature and other cultures. Originally I am a biologist and that helps me choose my subjects. In my 'Work on the Wall' account you will find a selection of my photos; of landscapes, plants and animals; both in color and black and white.
In my work I want to get away from the 'standard plates'. I want to raise questions, make people look at colours, shapes and structures from nature.
