These dead trees in the Namib Desert area of Namibia are not petrified, but are believed to be 600-700 years old. Scorched by the sun, they stand in a clay pan and remain undecayed because of the hot, dry climate.
Nearby is a broad vista of the clay and sand terrain.
Thank you very much, Eliza!
Yes, everyone loves these dead trees! Thanks, Amy. 🙂
I really like that first image.
Those dead trees are quite photogenic :-).
