“...I asked nomads about the highest dune in Erg Chebbi and how to get there…It was September and it’s known for the unbearable heat, that starts at around noon. Had to make sure to climb the dune before the sand got unbearably hot.
He showed me the way and said that he wants to join me to make sure I’m safe. Thanked him, but insisted on a solo climb. As I was making my way to the dune the nomad tent was further and further away… almost disappearing behind another dune. It always seems like you are so close to the top, until you reach what you think is the top, to see yet another dune ahead of you…Slowly but surely I was almost there…So I decided to take a little break. The feeling of being in the middle of the dunes alone is indescribable! You feel as if you are limitless… a beautiful combination of peace and power. My whole being surrendered to a moment where time didn’t exist.
It’s a very quiet and powerful realization, that you are not as important as you thought you were,
you are just another grain of sand … and it’s ok, because you are a part of this beauty. I had shivers down my spine knowing, that it’s just me, wind and the sand. As I was putting my camera away, a blue silhouette in the distance was making his way to the same dune…It was Mustafa!
