Photographer's Note

Walking on the fantastic dunes of Lençóis Maranhenses.

"Lençóis Maranhenses comprises a fantastic area of sand dunes extending for 62 miles/100 km along the coast of Maranhão and for 18 miles/30 km towards the hinterland, creating one of the most unique and surreal landscapes in the world. Within this vast area, green oases covered with buriti palms are home to a small population of nomadic people who make a living by fishing and farming cattle.

The desert landscape becomes even more beautiful from May to September, when several pools of transparent blue rainwater appear amongst the dunes.
