The Unforgiving Desert by Jill Fisher

Dead Vlei, Namibia, Africa. Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 16-35mm L lens. CLICK ON PIC TO VIEW LARGE. 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 the dead trees (skeletons) are around 900 years old.

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.
