Though always exemplifying a rugged desert terrain, Namibia’s Damaraland region nonetheless changes from place to place and from sunrise to sunset.
Standing on a hilltop overlooking a valley, I see the early morning sun filtering through clouds hanging over distant mountains.
Later, the moon sets over stark red earth, stretching out toward flat-topped hills.
A hardy, drought-tolerant moringa tree clings to a rocky hillside.
And finally, while driving along a winding country road I see the sun drop below the mountaintops.
I love the tree, and the moon images, but all are great vistas.
Thank you so much, Deborah!
The first two shots look a bit like the photos of Mars, complete with red landscape.
I think so…it reminds me of Mars too :-).
Always amazed at the places you visit. Great shots.
Yes, last year was busy with travel. France and Africa were both so nice. I’m glad you like the photos :-).
We traveled a lot last year…much more than usual. Glad you like the photos :-).
Great pictures with silent and peacefull mood…wish i could be there ! Best regards, Jürgen
Thank you, Jurgen. I enjoyed being in Namibia—loved the people and the animals. Stay healthy! Regards, Pam
The photo with the Moringa tree looks like a photograph from some other planet. These pictures are really wonderful, and thanks for posting them for us to enjoy.
Thank you very much, Geri!
Fantastic photos. You have a great eye and have really captured the ‘epic’ quality of the Namibian landscape. Did you use a polarizing filter on any of the shots, particularly on the one with the moon?
Thank you very much, Rocket!
You’re welcome. Did you see my question regarding whether or not you used polarizing filters? Would love some insight as to your expertise. Thanks
