Deadvlei (dead marsh) is part of one the oldest deserts in the world, the Namib-Rand desert in Namibia.

The clay pan was formed after rainfall, when the Tsauchab river flooded, creating temporary shallow pools where the abundance of water allowed camel thorn trees to grow. When the climate changed, drought hit the area, and sand dunes encroached on the pan, which blocked the river from the area.
The trees died, as there no longer was enough water to survive. The remaining skeletons of the trees, which are believed to have died 600-700 years ago, are now black because the intense sun has scorched them. Though not petrified, the wood does not decompose because it is so dry.

Etendeka Mountain Camp located in Namibia is the perfect example of how African communities learned to cohabit with wildlife, rather then hunting and killing it for some quick money. The preservation and the respect towards wildlife provides a better balance on the long run.
Absolutely everything at the camp was build by locals with material from the area. The same was also with all ingredients used in the kitchen.

The landscape in Etendeka was from another world, but the care to be out there and photograph it was very much from this world. One person was allowed to photograph while the other person was watching out to avoid any sudden appearance of a hungry lioness.

Deadvlei located at Sossusvlei, NamibRand-Naukluft National Park in Namibia is famous for its uniqueness allowing some pretty out of this world experience and photographing.

Driving along the ephemeral Tsauchab River towards the salt and clay pan of Sossusvlei you will see a promenade of sand dunes entering the valley.

There are certain places in this world that haunt me since I read about them during my infancy. One of this places is Kolmanskop. The town became a ghost town in the mid fifties of the last century. Prior to that it was the epicenter of the diamond boom of the German colony “Südwest Afrika”.

Since Kolmanskop has been abandoned the surrounding desert is claiming the area back. The buildings are progressively falling apart and there is nothing attractive about the site. My first impression was all but uplifting. Only once I started entering the buildings and wandered through the rooms I experienced the remote beauty of this place.

The blend of the first and soft light of the day entering through the windows, the differently painted colors of the rooms, the visible decay and the raw nature invading the houses with sand and forming dunes was a complete new and unique experience.

Diamonds are not to be found there anymore, but the images to be created there are real true gems.
