Day is created at Wolwedans

Owed to Nature

Boston, United States

Artist's Description

Dawn of our first morning in the wilds of Namibia. The air is so clean and crisp it fills lungs with new life. The stillness and expanse of landscape begin at our feet and reach out in every direction without end. Fresh jackal and oryx tracks lead from the soft sand of dunes to open savanna and rugged layers of mountain. The sun dances behind veils of clouds to set the sky ablaze and create a brilliant new day in Africa.

This is Wolwedans in the NamibRand Nature Reserve, Namibia.
