Thanks for the votes and comments on my camels, much appreciated
The Namib is a coastal desert in Southern Africa. The name Namib is of Nama origin and means "vast place". The Namib stretches more than 2000 kilometres along the Atlantic coasts of Angola, Namibia and South Africa. From the Atlantic sea eastward, the Namib gradually ascends in elevation, reaching up to 200km inland to the Great escarpment.
Annual precipitation ranges from 2 millimetres in the most arid regions to 200mm at the escarpment, making the Namib the only true desert in Southern Africa. Having endured arid or semi arid conditions for roughly 55-80 million years, the Namib may be the oldest desert in the world.
These images were taken during a guided trip into the desert with a field guide on Sunday, a truly amazing experience. The first four versions were taken from the top of a hill, you will see our van parked below. There are certain areas where they allow you out of the vehicle only because the desert has so much tiny plant life that you may stand on so they mark off a pathway you can walk on.
As you know landscapes are not my genre, so a bit out of my comfort zone.
Have a nice day
P.S sorry if I missed your images the last two days...with a flight home and Robs birthday yesterday, my time on epz has been limited, will catch up today
