Kolmanskop in Namibia is a ghost town literally being slowly swallowed by sand.. its an old mining town which was deserted many years ago, now providing a rich backdrop to imagination.. and a very eerily unusual, silent surrender to Nature’s Reclamation…

    What an amazing sight. So sad too. You captured the light, lines and colours really well.

  • Thanks Kasia-D… its an incredible place. An old diamond mining town left to wreck and ruin. on the plus side, its a great exp and place to visit, and I believe its been used in some movies.. :)
