«Dressed in light», a title by Jaroslav Seifert, came to my mind when I found these pictures waiting in one folder to be worked out. Nothing to do with Prague or anything Czech, however: here we are on the last inhabited strip of land before the Sahara, and shown here is a very basic method to reduce the advance of the desert throughout the windy plain. Not far from here, crossing a hill, I had to push the bicycle on the asphalted road, due to a thick layer of sand which had accumulated at the narrow saddle point.

360°, ten vertical images, zoom 16-85, 16 mm (x 1.5), 1/250, f/11.


A tough fight to prevent the advance of the desert.

Perhaps the method is not entirely effective, but is very interesting.
