Image Caption: STS040-151-133: Namibian Coast with very low sunlight angle.
An unusual amount of topographic detail is brought out by the low Sun angle. Geological structure, parallel to the coastline, controls the numerous lines of hills. Even comparatively small crescent dunes are shown in great detail.
