Dead Vlei, Namibia, Africa. Dead Vlei means dead marsh or lake. It is the name of an awe-inspiring white clay pan situated in the salt pan of Sossusvlei, in Namibia. It is estimated that these acacia trees have been dead for more than nine hundred years. Frozen in time, their twisted and contorted branches immovable even against the occasional breeze.

My favourite artist, Vincent Van Gogh once said “the way to know life is to love many things” and I hope those words are reflected in my photography.

Thanks for visiting and I hope some of my work resonates with you or inspires you as I am by other photographers’ amazing work here. Please feel free to explore and leave any comments.
