Namibia trip – Sossusvlei – Part1(day12)

As mentioned in the previous post we arrived late at the Sesriem campsite and woke up the next morning surrounded by landscape photos 🙂

The light, the dunes, the trees everything was screaming to be photographed and we set off to Dune Elim to drink in the scenery.

I know I am a lazy bugger but dang these dunes are hard to climb. Four steps forward, three steps back.

We saw something we have never seen before even if it was from quite a distance.

Never before have we seen Oryx babies.

To say I was running around at the magic hours was an understatement. The time was just so short to take landscape photos every day when the light was magical.

I was literally chasing the light and trust me there were photos everywhere. Need to go back.

Picking photos to post is also a daunting task so please bare with me if it seems like you are looking at the same pictures.

Some of the photos posted are panorama photos made up of 6 or more photos stitched together and will look better on the website than in the email some of you may receive.
