Namibia’s natural beauty, through my lens

October 19, 2016

I’ve just seen a Tweeted image of Sossusvlei in Namibia by Abercrombie & Kent (@AKTravel_UK), prompting me to post these images I took during my recent visit there. I was stunned by the natural beauty I was fortunate to experience first hand and capture through my lens. Dunes, gnarled trees, sand blasted rock, vivid blue skies, parched riverbeds and kilometres of nothingness, totally captivated me. Colour and texture, always an inspiration…

Have a scroll through my photographs. Don’t you agree?

Fantastic imagery… I keep bumping Namibia down in the priority stack for places more easy to get to. They ran an article in one of the Travel magazines this weekend about taking the Desert Express to Swakopmund – worth doing?

I’d go again in a flash. Thing is though it’s a vast country and it’s worth booking a reputable professional tour operator to get you from one place to the other. Distances between key places can be up to 5 hours and some of the terrain is harsh so you don’t want to be travelling unguided, is my opinion. I’ve not done the Desert Express or heard anything about it. but get there-it’s breathtakingly beautiful-striking landscapes at every turn and the locals are very warm.
