Two photos of the Namib Desert from recent Africa trip. The utter emptiness of Namibia surprised me. I’m a Capricorn, so noticed this sign in the northern Namib east of Swakopmund. And the mountainous dunes near Sossusvlei are ever popular with photographers, and this area is probably Namibia’s most popular and crowded National Park (but that’s not saying much!).  The rose-colored dunes reach heights I never thought dunes could reach. I had to keep pinching myself to remind that these are mounds of sand, not mountains. It’s very difficult to climb them, especially in the heat (and when you don’t have much water – duh!).  I’ll return for longer, so I can be patient with light for those stunningly simple compositions available throughout the Namib, and also northward along the Skeleton Coast.
