Solitude by Joel_Santos
The name “Sossusvlei” means “dead-end marsh”, owing this name to the fact that it was a drainage basin without outflows for the ephemeral Tsauchab River. Most of the sandunes are over 80 meters high and are composed of 5-million-year-old sands, thus making the Namib the oldest desert on Earth.

Beyond The Veil Of Death VI by MarselvanOosten
This is the sixth image from my award-winning series, but I never officially entered this one as it didn’t add to the flow. However, as a standalone I think it works quite well with that receding tree line.
In terms of post processing my main concern was to keep the contrast down. I converted the shot to black and white and deliberately did not set the black point and the white point. I wanted to make this look like a pencil drawing, so it needed to stay sort of grayish.
Conditions like this a pretty rare in Deadvlei, but I hope that we’re going to be lucky again next year.

Due to popular demand we have added a second Namibia Untamed tour for 2016, and exceptional landscape photographer Ryan Dyar will lead that tour.
If you want to visit Namibia, look no further. We were the first company to offer photography tours to Namibia, and there is no better organized Namibia tour out there. Also, we are still the only company that offers microlight flights over the famous Namibian sand dunes.
If you’re interested in joining Ryan to Namibia, please check out our website for more information, images, video clips, and a very detailed tour PDF: http://www.squiver.com
Hope to see you there!
