Namibia update #4

With intermittent internet, and none for the next three or four days, I wanted to push a fast update.  We have been in the great  Sossusvlie region of the Namib Desert for the past three days.  The weather has been unseasonably hot however, we have been blessed with killer clouds for our photography.  They say that clouds happen in this area only 4 or 5 days out of the year, so we have hit pay dirt.   The photo below was taken from the vary popular Dead Vlie area at the end of the road in the Sossusvlie Reserve.

Hasselbald H5D, 35-90mm at 65mm, ISO 100, 1/250 @ f/9.0

The very poor internet connection is preventing me from posting additional photos at this time however, I would like to share the highlight of the day – a helicopter overflight of the dunes flying out to the ocean and back.  What a sight this was and no doubt this will be included in all future excursions to Namibia.

Cheers and happy photo’ing.
