Camel thorn tree (Acacia erioloba)

Artist's Description

Click on the image to view larger
Deadvlei is a spectacular region of the Namib desert and one of the world’s most striking, well-preserved desert landscapes. The huge pan, or vlei, is surrounded by towering sand dunes as far as the eye can see, reputed to be the highest in the world. It was formed after rainfall, when the Tsauchab river flooded, creating temporary shallow pools, where the abundance of water allowed camel thorn trees to grow. When the climate changed, drought hit the area and the trees died.
