Tinted orange by the morning sun, a soaring dune is the backdrop for the hulks of camel thorn trees in Namib-Naukluft Park.

Most amazing place called Dead Vlei, very close to the well known Sossus Vlei in Namibia. It is alleged that the highest sand dunes in the world can be found here. Very remote but worth the effort.

This is so beautiful. Is the ground really blue, or is it the shadow that looks blue?
