Desert Dust at Dawn

Deadvlei, Sossusvlei, Namib-Naukluft Park,Namibia

 

Deadvlei is a white clay pan located near the more famous salt pan of Sossusvlei, inside the Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia. The sand on the shadow side of the dunes is a pastel, rather that the bright orange color on the eastern side, as the sun rises.

Zebra – Variations on a Theme

Harem of Burchell’s zebra, or plains zebra, grazing in Etosha National Park, Namibia. Burchell’s zebra are distinguished by light brown stripes running inside the lines of their black and white striped pattern.  Plains zebra prefer open grasslands and watering holes and often mix with other species. Burchell’s zebra are highly social, forming harems with a single stallion, several mares, and their foals. Harems may form large herds. The plains zebra is the most common of three zebra species, and it is the most geographically widespread.
