Photographer's Note

The first picture that I ever posted on TE was from Sossusvlei. I have processed another one that I rather like. This is the note I attached to that very first TE post;
'The sand dunes at Sossusvlei are the highest in the world. Namibia is a great African country to visit and I would recommend it to anyone slightly nervous about visiting Africa. The roads are very well maintained even though most are gravel. Namibia gained independence from South Africa in 1990 after a war. However, the infrastructure built by South Africa has been reasonably well maintained. There are about 3 million people in a vast country and the second least densely populated in the world (according to Wikipedia. Much is desert but is stunningly beautiful with very different rock formations. The sightings of animals are less frequent (except in Etosha) than in typical safari countries because of the harsh conditions but the thrill of coming across them is wonderful. The standard of accommodation can be excellent, whether tented camps, lodges or the hotels/guesthouses in the capital of Windhoek. Anyone interested in star gazing should visit the Sossusvlei area (or indeed other areas of Namibia)as there is no light pollution'.
