Photographer's Note

Here we have another view of the dead trees in Deadvlei area. How I told you before this region has a small temporary stream that runs for few days, creating a temporary swamp, the water stay in the subterranean and permit trees to live. Anyway the winds changed the dunes and this area was closed and the stream moved to another route while the trees died.

Temos aqui mais uma vista das árvores mortas de Deadvlei. Como já disse antes, este local possui um riacho temporário que recebe água por apenas uns poucos dias, criando um pântano temporário que deixa água no subsolo, algo que hidrata as árvores acima. Esta área ficou isolada do riacho depois que as dunas se moveram, bloqueando a água e matando as árvores.
