The Chobe river forms Botswana’s northern border with Namibia and the boundary of southern Africa. Its water helps maintain a lush floodplain and rich variety of habitats vital to the multitude of animals that inhabit Chobe National Park. via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1IrK8dF
Liquid of life in the Namib desert. We did follow this thunderstorm for a few hours . The rain fall was always on our left hand side. It was great to observe it moving through the desert building a stripe of grass. After a few hours we nearly had to drive through… tough winds were coming up out of nothing and the silence of the hot desert during afternoon suddenly was gone. It was just awesome to observe the nature forces at work. Since that i know why you drive for hours through a dry landscape with no animals and suddenly there are hundreds of them…. such a thunderstorm happend exactly there 2-3 weeks ago…a miracle of life — Re-mastered version of a shot taken in March this year in the Namib desert via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1RZsoxP

Sunset in the Namib desert. In this frame you can see the two sides of this sunset. On the right side the sun doesn´t reach the blue/grey sky anymore while on the left side the sunset is still in his yellow / orange phase. It was great to observe this while having the camera setup with a 90 degree angle to the direct sunlight. This area is close to the border of the Skeleton national parc in the northwest region of Namibia. In the lower season it can happen that you do not see any other human beings for days. One of my favourite areas in Namibia because you can also observe desert elephants in this region if you are lucky. The tree on the left side is standing in the middle of an epidemic stream. This is the reason for the sand line to the hill in the foreground on the left side. Must be great to see water in such an epidemic stream … coming out of nothing. via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1QrlLRR
