Dead Vlei, Namibia

From the red dunes of Sossussvlei you slog your way up the sandy slope to Dead Vlei, the dried out bed of a swamp, or lake, with its dead trees crucified in the morning heat. This must be one of the most photographed places in Namibia, but still irresistible to the photographer, and a place of timelessness and wonderment to the observer.

Here are some images. I was going to do them in black and white, but Rob prefers them in colour. See what you think.
