I have just got back from an amazing three-week expedition to Namibia, Africa, with one of its best company safari operators – Africa Geographic, and guided by Dr. Christian Boix Hinzen, an ornithologist with a great passion for nature, photography, Africa and adventure, with a PhD on birds science.
I have acquired a new sense for photography by experiencing so lively the Namibian wilderness along with their people, traditions and culture.
Regarding this particular photo, it was for me a dream come true to have the opportunity of walking on the salt pan of Deadvlei with its famous old camel thorn trees.
I got instantly emotional and had to hold on in order to get proper exposures on my cameras.
It was a windy and moody sunset, blasts of sand creating a particular atmosphere to an already incredible landscape. I had just about 15min before the sun light would cease to hit the trees. And there we stayed for the night fall, with stars and the side lighting of a rising moon was also unforgettable.
Today, I proudly commence this new series on Namibia and hope to inspire your senses for nature conservation, appreciation and preservation as well as traveling and (re)discovering the world.
