Rising early and making the challenging climb onto the sand dune ridge was well worth the effort, as I was rewarded with this breathtaking view. The gentle morning light transformed the dunes into a sea of silky waves. The immense vastness of the Sahara desert is readily comprehended in relation to the person strolling across the dunes. This image symbolizes a sense of freedom and exploration.
