Sossusvlei

Sossusvlei is in the southern part of Namibia, famous for its high red dunes carved by the wind. The dunes are really only red in the early morning, when the sun rises over them.

We went there in 2006, on our first long road trip together, in the Land Rover, getting up early to be at the gate by six, when the Sossusvlei gates open. We took a lot of photographs, as you may imagine. But this image is from the early evening, away from Sossusvlei proper; we had stopped by the roadside for a picnic, setting up the gas braai (BBQ) and the camping chairs and table. This tree, and the line of dunes behind it, had attracted our attention.
