SANDS OF THE DESERT | NAMIB IN FLOOD
We tend to think of sand as a fairly simple material made up of one or two elements, but add water and each element acts in a different way, splitting into a beautiful concoction of liquids, each with a different colour, weight and viscosity. When the rain ceases and the sun evaporates the water, it all dries differently, creating this beautiful variety of colours and textures. This image shows just how complex sand and its resulting pattern and texture can be.
