THE NAMIB DESERT
"Solitude allows the pondering of our earnest
principles while also listening to the
echos of our hidden doubts"
It's all but impossible to express the emotions one feels when the eyes first gaze at the Namib Desert. This is the world’s oldest desert, some estimate it was created 80,000 years ago. A coastal desert extending for 1200 miles (1900 kilometers) from Angola to Namibia. It is home to some of the tallest dunes found anywhere, displaying an incredible array of earth tones. No one who has witnessed this natural spectacle could question why it was designated a World Heritage Site.
I haven’t found another place on Earth capable of transcending my emotions as deeply as the Namib. This stunning wilderness gives us a great reason for existing and allows a better assessment of our purpose. When wandering into this vast isolated habitat, any hike may become the first time anyone has ventured there. I consider myself exceptionally fortunate for having photographed this splendorous landscape several times. Hope the images in this gallery, and particularly in the Limited Edition, do it proper justice.
