Square Tops #18: Sunrise at the Top

Top of the Dune

On Top of the Dune, Sossusvlei , Namib Desert, Namibia

 

Join Becky’s April Squares: SquareTops. There are only two rules: the photo must be square and it must relate to the theme of the month.

The theme for April Squares is ‘top‘, and Becky has listed five idioms to choose from;

  1. On Top of the World – summit, crown, peak (tiptop) or uppermost part of something.
  2. Under the Big Top – topping or covering (or if you are really lucky a circus!)
  3. Room at the Top – first or highest in position
  4. Cherry on Top – something made even more wonderful by becoming square
  5. Top and Tail – or maybe you’d prefer to play around with word combinations such as top dog, top stitch, top hat, top secret, top knot, top drawer or top dollar!

The main tag is #SquareTops but you may also want to add a second tag using the idiom your square is coming under.

The Desert Adapted Elephants Of Namibia

Desert Adapted Elephants, Nambia

Desert Adapted Elephants, Namibia

My first encounter with an elephant in the wild happened in Damaraland, in Namibia’s northwest. Just before sunset, we drove out to look for a herd of desert adapted elephants moving through the area. We turned a corner and there they were, grazing on the shrubs and trees. I was in awe. To see my first elephant in the wild—no chains, no pens, no fences—was a magical moment.  For more information, check out Desert Elephants of Namibia.

The moon was setting while the sun was rising over the red sand dunes of Sossusvlei, in the southern part of the Namib desert. Sossusvlei is a salt and clay pan surrounded by high red dunes in Namibia’s Namib-Naukluft National Park.
