If you find yourself looking at this Namibian desert photo series when you're feeling a little hungry, you might start to see similarities between the soft sandy dunes and deliciously melted chocolate.

As one of the oldest deserts in the world -- it is over 43 million years old -- the Namib desert is known for its stunning landscape and unobstructed and infinite vastness. Captured by photographer Peter Adams, this mind-blowing Namibian desert photo series is special because it beautifully tangos with the light to portray breathtaking contrasts and distinctly shaped dunes that look like crescents, horseshoes and anything else the imaginative mind can see.

Showing the audience the home of the nomadic Topnaar clan, the series is proof that some things always stay the same -- the dry desert has looked the same for the last 2 million years.
