Photographer's Note

I can't resist posting a couple of photos from Deadvlei.
Although, I believe, all people who have ever visited or even just checked Internet for Namib desert are familiar with this landscape. It is almost like to display Eiffel tower on the photo of Paris. Still, I am saying I can't resist :)
Deadvlei (1.5km from Sossusvlei)is a special place. We came there close to noon, the temperature on a summer midday was probably close to 45C. We haven't even noticed the heat: we were so enchanted with this fairy-tale landscape.
I increased contrast with curves and levels to fight a noon paleness of colours.
