Post 1 – Namibia, a land of contrasts and remoteness.
From the softness of the dunes of the Namib Desert to the rock formations of Damaraland, landscape photography is at its finest. In this harsh environment, the Himba people with their goats and the wild animals are always searching for water. The mountain zebra is found in the region, as well as desert elephants. Ancient cultures left behind beautifully etched rock art for us to interpret their lives. Namibia gives us great photographic opportunities for cats! And the dry desert air and lack of development give us clear night skies. We will be posting throughout September and October with more details of Namibia, our experiences and photo techniques.
Next post – the Namib desert, from hiking through the dunes to capturing scenes from a hot air balloon – landscape and abstracts.
