Dune Detail, Namibia



Here’s another image from the massive dunes that line the road in Sossusvlei National Park, Namibia. The dunes were very high, and some great compositions were above the desert floor, but here, I liked the two trees that gave it scale. Not much more to say than that, just sharing images!

Thanks for visiting,

Morning Dunes, Sossusvlei, Namibia

After arriving home with 9000 images to sort through, I ran out of hard drive space to put them and things just snowballed from there, slowing down the whole process. I’m back up and running – but who said technology would make it all easier! HA! lol.

Namibia was over-the-top exciting, maybe because it was my first time in Wild Africa (you can’t count Morocco although it is exotic, too). Or maybe because Namibia is so unique with the variety of landscapes you experience, the wildlife you see, and the cultural experiences. No matter why, it was a great trip and we are going back in 2015 so watch for our final details on my site, but you may want to get on the list with Strabo Tours.



This image is from our first morning along the main road through the dunes at Sossusvlei National Park. The light was soft at first, but gained strength as the sun rose. There were so many interesting compositions to consider! We had a blast.


I’ll be posting more images from our trip here and on my Facebook Albums, as soon as I get through the editing process!


Thanks for visiting,

Abandoned Dreams



Here’s another one from Kolmanskop mining town. I loved how the doors were hanging by one hinge, and the rooms glowed with wonderful paint colors. In its day, it must have been a very colorful, pretty place. I used a bit of negative clarity on this one to soften the textures and add a more dreamy effect.


Enjoy your day,
