This area has a temporary stream that use to have some water during few days in the year, these dunes closed the way transforming the area in a temporary swamp, the water goes to the subterranean areas and the trees can get some water during the rest of the year. This area is named Deadvlei, it was an area where the stream was closed by the dunes and the water no more arrived there, killing those trees. The place is a masterpiece of nature.
Esta região tem uma torrente temporária que flui apenas durante uns poucos dias no ano, criando um pântano temporário bloqueado pelas dunas. As águas descem para o subsolo e alimentam as árvores durante meses. Esta região que vocês estão vendo na foto ficou isolada da torrente e as árvores morreram. Este lugar, Deadvlei, é uma obra prima da natureza.

Usually, I hear a salt is the white dead, or sugar, for example. Another interesting report from the Namibian desert. Splendid minimaist composition, attractive colors combination.

a fascinating title and original image. I love the mix of natural elements here and it makes for an almost abstract artistic presentation. Amazing!
