Artist's Description

Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 16-35mm L Lens. CLICK ON PIC TO VIEW LARGE.
In the Namib-Naukluft National Park, in the central Namib Desert, Namibia is a strange and alien landscape. Known as Dead Vlei or “dead marsh” it is found among the tallest dunes in the world, reaching some 400 meters or 1,312 feet high, taller than the Empire State Building. Some 900 years ago the climate dried up, and dunes cut off Dead Vlei from the river.

It became so dry in Dead Vlei that not only did the trees die, but it became too dry for the trees to even decompose, and they simply scorched black in the sun, monuments to their own destruction. The trees, now over a 1000 years old (it is believed they were living for some 200 years before the climate shifted again), form a barren forest of ancient dead trees, frozen much as they were some 900 years ago.
