Desert Dust in the Mornin Light

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.

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.

Beneath My Feet

Namibia Beneath My Feet

One year ago today I departed for Namibia. My two-week journey was a transforming experience. It was my first trip to Africa and was close to a perfect travel experience as I can imagine, not counting the long layovers in London Heathrow. So today, I celebrate the African soil that was under my feet.
