Description
Namibia has the world’s most spectacular and varied desert landscapes and one of the least populated countries on the planet… its endless vistas will be permanently etched into your soul as we traverse the country with our cameras. Nowhere else will you see families of desert elephant moving silently through the beautiful valleys in search of life-giving oases. No other desert has a Skeleton Coast where the great Atlantic Ocean waves pound a burning shore littered with shipwrecks, often shrouded in fog where only giant seal colonies live. Namibia’s desert winds have sculpted the world’s highest dunes out of red sand and it is these dunes that make the Namibian landscape like no other on earth. In some places the dunes rise out of endless fields of grass and in others the dunes are as high as mountains. In a special place the sand cut off the water supply to a seasonal wetland and today the result is the petrified trees of Deadvlei. In the far South, fine silica sands are now reclaiming what was once the site of a great diamond rush – the ghost town of Kolmanskop. To the West, a special combination of rocky ground and hot, arid conditions have created one of the most alien plants on earth; the Quiver Tree. Join us for an opportunity to experience and photograph these one of a kind landscapes under professional guidance. Together with ur local experts we have designed a trip where we will take you to the most photogenic locations, not just carefully planned for the best light, but to aid you in mentally visualizing a scene before capturing the decisive moment. Our goal during this trip is not only send you home with images you are proud of, but use your new found skills to improve and expand your photographic and post editing technique in general.
