Photographer's Note

Few kilometers ahead of Dune 45 we visited this area named Sossusvlei. There are giant dunes there and some tourists were climbing them. Not me, because I was very, very tired of the previous one. This area has more trees and animals than the previous one.
This region receives a flood during few days by year and a temporary stream create a swamp that get give water to the trees during many months, subterranean waters..

Poucos quilômetros depois da Duna 45, fomos conhecer Sossusvlei, repleta de dunas gigantes e com mais árvores e animais ao redor que a paisagem anterior.
Um riacho temporário alimenta um pântano que por sua vez dá água para as árvores desta região durante meses, água subterrânea.
