ELEMENTS | Sossusvlei

Sossusvlei is a salt and clay pan surrounded by high red dunes, located in the southern part of the Namib Desert, in the Namib-Naukluft National Park of Namibia. Deadvlei used to be an oasis with several acacia trees; as the river that watered the oasis changed its course the trees were scorched by the desert sun thousands of years ago (source: Wikipedia).

I like this one the most from your photos from Namibia. It's hard to build an interesting atmosphere when you have bright colours, it works excellently in dark images, but you achieved this goal. Well done!

Thank you so much for such a kind complement, and yes, I completely agree with mood vs color choices.....
