Namibia Landscapes and Wildlife: We Retrieve our Cameras

Wim reports from the Namibia Landscapes and Wildlife Safari: We Retrieve our Cameras

We had timed our star-trail photography to coincide with the Southern Hemisphere Winter Solstice, and as we approached our cameras, we were very keen and somewhat anxious to see the results … and as we looked, each of us could barely suppress a whoop!!! The images are just outstanding.
So we spent the last few hours at Dead Vlei in high sprits, photographing the animals and dunes for the final time …

Then we headed back to the Lodge for breakfast before we departed for Swakopmund.
Now, after a great drive across the country, we are ready to have dinner at the waterfront pub, and tomorrow we plan to start photographing the totally different coastal wildlife and vistas …
