After this
photo one more from the dunes of Merzouga.
I do not know how they were found there and in what they were useful for, but for me it was a good opportunity to capture them.

Μετά από αυτή
τη φωτογραφία,μιά ακόμα από τους αμμόλοφους της Μεζούρκα.
Δεν ξέρω πως βρέθηκαν εκεί και σε τι χρησίμευαν, αλλά για εμένα ήταν μιά καλή ευκαιρία να τις αποθανατίσω.

Hello Danos,
This may very well be your best photo. Colors and texture of the desert are always fantastic at this hour. But these metal chairs produce such a strange feel. It's like they were added to the image afterwards. Bizarre, intriguing, interesting and visually attractive. Regards,

Hi Danos
Maybe those chairs are going to wait a long time for people being sitting on them. Original composition, vivid color, excellent point of view and great details.
Well done! Congratulations!
Best regards

Hi Danos,
It's veru curious theses chairs in the desert, original and attractive view, well done.

Hello Danos
Very strange but nice art....
Good idea

Geia sou Danos,
superb sharpness and noise-free tones - I guess that's credit to your camera!
But also wonderful original composition, subject, light. That's all credit to you.
Bravo Danos.

Hi Danos, what a stuning and beautiful shot of these chairs in the desert, certainly looks very surreal and confusing seeing it in that inviroment, they almost represent people, it has a great feeling to it, I also like your composition and POV, well done, thanks for sharing it with us, regards, Joao Salas

hello Danos,
for some reason this photo reminds me of Dali paintings, probably because the chairs in the middle of the desert look so surreal. but also the colours, the combination of warm yellow-brown and cool blue is quite characteristic. excellent photo, both in terms of composition - the placement of chairs create a very nice depth to the scene, and in terms of light management and level of details - the textures on the sand are fantastic. I particularly like your choise of the point of view and that the chairs are under the horizon line. very good work.

Geia sou Danos,
Very nice composition. I can be a nice place to drink a glass of mint tea and watch the sunset on the dunes...
You photo with marvelous colours stimulates the imagination.

Superbe photo, Danos! La lumière et les couleurs sont splendides et ces chaises métalliques donnent un aspect surréaliste à l'image.

Joli cliché de ces dunes aux couleurs accentuées. La présence des chaises dans ce désert donne un côté insolite à l'image.

Hi Danos,
Indeed a strange vision - a kind of artistic installation in the dunes of the Sahara... A excellent pretext for a gorgeous photo! The razing light nicely enhances the shapes on the surface of the sand and the warm colours. Truly beautiful!
Regards, José.

Very nicely composed image, with great colors and sharpness, and superb sky. The details on the chairs and sand are superb.

Hi Danos, I agree this is a very unusual place to find iron chairs like this, however you made great use of them, to me your POV is perfect, as it takes all four in without detracting from any of the others, the light is excellent & the stunning colours are beautiful, a fine piece of work, kind regards Wilson.

The blue sky and orange sand complement each other nicely. I like how you incorporated these chairs in your photo. The low side lighting is nice too, and creates some good contrast on the sand. Nice one.

Hello Danos
This is terrific! What a marvellous subject - and you have treated very very well. The light is perfect, with no heavy shadows. The colours are clear and pure. Dali ,of course, comes to mind - but you have made your own surreal image here.
Witty and wonderful

Fantasy and surealiste photo. You Are you sure that Salvador Dali had not come on holidays here?(!)
The effect of surprise is stressed by the shadows lined on the left. A very original photo of the desert!

Hi Danos,
I also have the same query with these chairs, artistic metal chairs in two different design, smooth surface of sand, distinct image, well done.

Bonjour Danos,
tu as fait fort dans l'abstraiti ici, une oeuvre photo que je qualifierais de très contemporraine.
J'aimebeaucoup l'esthétique des ombres dans le sable due à ces lumières très basses.

Hello Danos.
J'aime cette photo pour la beauté des couleurs et du paysage mais la présence de ces sièges en plein désert a quelque chose de magique qui fait penser à une oeuvre d'art contemporain.

Could be a Pink Floyd cover... Looks like the ghosts of the desert just finished their daily meeting... :)


Hi Danos,
Great shot for this place with fantastic atmosphere. Colours and lights are amazing, the composition is splendid. Congratulations, Very well done! Have a nice week

Γειά σου Δάνο, στην έρημο απίθανες οι καμήλες?-)) οι καρέκλες ήθελα να πώ, παράξενο αλλά εκσυγχρονίζονται και εκεί οι καμήλες και μοιάζουν με καρέκλες! Ωραίο το χρώμα, βαθύ και πολύ αμμώδες! Ο ουρανός ταιριαστός, καλή επιστροφή!

Indeed, it was, Danos. Quite a strange set that makes a good oportunity for an artistic capture. Art in the desert? Why not? :) They have quite an interesting design, two females and two males, but only one has arms ;-) The light and colors are gorgeous and I'm thinking of a composition a bit more to the left, so we can apreciate more the long shadows at left, as well as the graphism on the sand.

Kalimera Danos,
looks more like a presentation of art. I assume that a chair with small legs is in a desert of sand in most cases useless. But a nice composition of living art with good textures on the sand and good light.

Hello Danos,
It is indeed very interesting to see these chairs in the desert. They actually prvide depth to the image. Well metered, there is good exposure and colors. A very attractive landscape. A place I'd like to visit someday. Happy holidays! Danilo

Hola Danos,
peculiar and attractive photography, certainly is art. The composition is simple but elegant, and with the fabulous colors, great resistance of tonalities between brown-ochers of the sand of dunes and the blue one of the sky.
Watching the scene it seems that the passage of time is very slow and calm, great atmosphere.

Salut, Jordi

Kalispera Dano,

A great shot! TFS.

You must have thought it was your birthady seeing this present of the chairs in the desert; very surreal. You certaily made good use of them and created a very artistic image. Lovely tones, light and contrast.

Γεια σου Δάνο,

Η φωτογραφία σου υπέροχη, μου θυμίζει πινακα σε μουσείο μοντέρνας τέχνης...


Εκτός από μάτι χρειάζεται και τύχη Δάνο! Πολύ ωραία γωνία λήψης διάλεξες... μπράβο!

Πράγματι. Τέχνη πάνω στην άμμο.
Δεν ξέρω πως βρέθηκαν οι καρέκλες εκεί, αλλα σίγουρα εσύ έκανες μια πολύ όμορφη και ασυνήθιστη φωτογραφία.
Πολύ καλό το φώς βοήθησε πολύ στην ανάγλυφο "γράψιμο" του εδάφους, αλλά και στην ανάδειξη της φόρμας των καρεκλών.

Kalispera Dano, I love the strangness of this combination of dunes and metal chair. There's a conceptual feel to it which in this is case is actually emphasized by the immaculate rendering of the sand textures and the metal of the chair... and of course the gorgeous light. Beautiful and enigmatic work, I like this a lot!
Have a fine week,

Well done!

The colors, quality and light are all superb. It has a tremendous Dali taste in it. Very nice :)

Excellent and original scene, I like the warm brown of those dunes, the light and the sand texture. Those chairs are a great idea and with the desert they make an almost surrealistic compo. Beautiful effect.

hello,hello Danos,
hm,certainly was for the tourists who makes pictures for TE;)an interesting scene captured in the desert..i remembered now by a piece of theatre entitled 'Chairs' by E.Ionesco,where the scene is replenished with those chairs and perpetually moved by a personage,a philosophy about illusion of life..i don't know the purpose here,maybe just to take a seat;)...but like the idea and thanks for show us;)

Sharpness and composition are amazing.

It is really very artistical composition. Wonderful,thanks for sharing with us,

Quite an unusual scene to see such chairs in the desert, given their elaborate style it certainly has to do with some artwork display as you imagined, nice warm feeling radiating from the sand.

This chairs are really unusual in the Merzouga but the composition is great with them there. Wonderful capture, with very nice colours and light!

Hello Danos,
this is a truly wonderful picture with a great compo!
I like the great perspective offered by the chairs in the fg and the way they leads the eye to the wonderful horizon. The lighting you've captured is something magical adding a special game between highlights and shadows to enhance even more the beauty of your pic.
Thanks very much for sharing it!

Hej Danos,
Great photo! So interesting to see those chairs in the middle of the desert. Makes one curious how they got there. The colours are very attractive and so is the lighting. Very well done and thanks for sharing!

Hi Danos,
It looks like a detail part of Dali paintings.
Realistic but unreal.

Hi danos,

On se demande ce qu'elles font là... et puis, on ne se pose plus la question, on se contente de se dire que c'était une bonne idée, la photo est superbe !

Merhaba Danos,
Wonderful scenery...
Beautiful composition, colours and good sharpness. Excellent work!
Best wishes,

What a fabulous photo opportunity this was, Danos. It is almost like someone has placed these in the desert in order to produce just the photograph that you have taken as a work of art. The colours and shadows of the dunes are terrific in themselves, but without the chairs it would have been 'just another desert shot' However, with the inclusion of the chairs you have a masterpiece! I must remember to bring some chairs along next time I visit Morocco ;)
Cheers . . . David

Kalispera Danos,
A fine and clear view on the golden sand on the desert. The "chairs" as statue give scale on vast land.

dragi Danos
to je pripravljeno za turiste in popotnike, ki pridejo mimo, da se lahko spočijejo. priznam, da je zelo zanimivo videti stole sredi sipin.
dober strel!! tfs!
lep večer, vojko

Well dione.
Great composition.
Fine orange for the sand..
I wonder if you put in the circular polariser.,... in the lens?

I think someone might have left these chairs after late nigh party...

This is very very cool! Wonderful!



Δάνο καλημέρα,
το μόνο που δεν περίμενα να δω στην έρημο είναι αυτές οι φερ φορζέ καρέκλες.Εντυπωσιακή φωτογραφία με τις ομορφιά να είναι απλωμένη σε όλο το σκηνικό.


Hello Danos,

it's a strange place to show art, but it is interesting, you were lucky to captured them, the visual result is nice,

Have a good weekend,
