A view on Walwis Bay lighthouse. Walwis Bay is situated on the Namibian coast, a few kilometers away from the city of Swakopmund. Walwis Bay is famous for its colony of sea lions (second place after Cape Cross).
More info :
The Walvis Bay Lagoon is regarded as the most important wetland for coastal birds in Southern Africa. A bird count during 1998 found it to be a safe haven for between 70 000 -120 000 birds and a feeding station for about 200 000 birds on their natural migration route to and from the Arctic. Wading birds including the Lesser and Greater flamingos and rare White pelicans can be seen on the lagoon.

Nice contrast between the lighthouse and the old building.
Nice composition, not being temped to centre the subjects has given this photo an interesting look.

L'idee est interesante
j'aime bien les coleurs et le contraste entre eau desert et ciel, par contre elle n'est pas tres nette et je pense que le phare est un peu trop crowded au gauche de la photo.
PS Walvis Bay etait pas un enclave Sudafricain?
