Scars Of Time

Erosion is the visualization of time. It takes decades, centuries and millenniums for a part of earth to evolve into an object of natural art. I found this beautiful specimen in the Namib Desert. A stone boulder in the midst of others spread over a sand dune shows deep scars of abrasion caused by the winds and sands. A mild winter sunset allows for full frontal light without too much contrast. Getting real close to the rock with my 20mm wide angle lens resulted in this dynamic composition.
