Photographer's Note

A few kilometers before entering the Tadrart (Sahara, Algeria)

On the first day, after a few hours drive, our guides let us get out of the car as we had reached the bottom of a big dune. We climbed by foot to the top.

The crest of the dune formed a straight line so we removed the sand on a couple of meters long to make sure the cars would pass.

Drivers had to be careful to have the right speed (not too quick, not too slow) in order to pass the crest of the dune easily, that is without getting "stuck" on the crest (which happened to the second car!).

I took this picture as the first car had just passed on the other side of the dune. When the 3 cars had passed, we joined them up walking (or running...) to the bottom of the dune, on the other side.
