Dead trees and sand dunes in blistering hot sunlight at Deadvlei, Sossusvlei Salt Pan, Namib Naukluft National Park, Namibia

The iconic Deadvlei in the Namibian desert is truly a special place on this planet. I had woken at 4am this morning and was first in line waiting to enter the national park of Sossusvlei Namibia. Upon arriving at the parking area I then proceeded with a long tiring walk in soft dune sand to arrive at Deadvlei which is nestled in between some very large dunes. The sight is quite spectacular yet almost ghostlike and being the first person there I had plenty of time to size up an area I had seen so many photographs of over the years. The textures, shapes and constrasts are indeed quite something and I decided to try something different with this image. I waited until the sun was a bit higher to achieve what I had in mind. I specifically wanted to express in an image the feeling of being in the desert under the blazing african sun with not a drop of water in sight. This was taken at 9am in the morning and the mercury was already approaching 30 Degrees Celsius. Image taken with a Nikon D3s, Nikkor 14-24mm lens @ 14mm, ISO 200, 1/200, f/22. Raw and Processing adjustments included Exposure, Vibrance/Saturation, Noise Removal, Curves and Sharpening.

Camel Thorn Trees at Deadvlei near Sossusvlei during sunset over dunes, Namibia, Africa

Deadvlei is a white clay pan located near the more famous salt pan of Sossusvlei, inside the Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia. Also written DeadVlei or Dead Vlei, its name means dead marsh (from English dead, and Afrikaans vlei, a lake or marsh in a valley between the dunes).
Dead Vlei has been claimed to be surrounded by the highest sand dunes in the world, the highest reaching 300-400 meters (350m on average, named Big Daddy or Crazy Dune), which rest on a sandstone terrace.
The clay pan was formed after rainfall, when the Tsauchab river flooded, creating temporary shallow pools where the abundance of water allowed camel thorn trees to grow. When the climate changed, drought hit the area, and sand dunes encroached on the pan, which blocked the river from the area.
