Photographer's Note

Dead Vlei again. Usually the photos show only one or two black dead trees against red dune. Here I want to show the whole view. It is a large clay pan surrounded by high, even more than 300 m, dunes. In spite of very unfavourable conditions, there is life there. There are some green bushes, flowers, gekons and bugs. Our guide who was native from there, told us very interesting facts about the history of this area and how can some
plants and animals survive.

How stupid I am! I wanted to post large version, but with a frame I lost the proportions 2,5 to 1.

My 1400th shot.
