Über mich


I am passionate, if not fanatic, about the Namib Desert in Namibia. It stretches along the coast of Namibia and is frequented daily by fog coming in from the Atlantic ocean in the afternoons and rolling out again in the mornings mostly accompanied by strong winds. This results in the most extraordinary light effects and an almost supernatural glow and always changing horizontal highlights. A mountain can be almost black at one moment and then glowing white the next moment. This also goes for the sand dunes, we have almost scarlet dunes in the south, beige ones in the middle and almost white ones in the north and always the play of fog and light. To those in a hurry the Namib desert will appear grey and desolate but for the sensitive and patient viewer it will unfold itself into the most uplifting scenery ranging from sublime subtleties to dramatic colour highlights. A most rewarding subject for those that are prepared to wait !
I have just changed from my very beloved Nikon F100 to digital Nikon D 700. At this stage I do not work on my photographs with Photoshop or similar programmes and submit the photographs as they were taken.

    I have no idea which bird is male or female. As one commenter said, the bird with its mouth open could be just wanting food. Just a fun scene. Hope you enjoyed it.

    Hello Cathy,
    Many thanks for your message telling me about all of the mining that is happening. I suppose your Government will be getting money from all of the project, but somehow that does not make it right that such a different and, in its own way, beautifull area is devastated by such mining projects. It beggers belief that man can and does devastate and totally ruin great areas of outstanding beauty for the sake of money........
    I suppose when they/we have toally ruined our beautiful world, made millions and millions of pounds, dollars, whatever...... then we will realise our stupidity and rue the day.
    Let us hope that sooner raather than later, we do see sense and stop all the destruction..... but I very much doubt that it will happen.

    Take care

    Maybe they were little bit frightened, because it is early for them, they only started growing. :-)

    liebe Cathy,
    Du hast ja keine Ahnung, wie gerne ich das würde. Aber allein kann ich leider so weit und so fremd nicht reisen, das traue ich mir dann doch nicht zu.
    Es freut mich, dass Du auf FB meine Stuttgartbilder schaust und sie Dir gefallen.
    Deine Wüstenbilder sind meiner Meinung nach außer Konkurrenz, ich schaue sie so gerne und kann sie immer wieder anschauen, und sie werden nie langweilig. Wie würde das erst sein, wenn ich einmal wirklich so wie Du davor stehen könnte..., nicht aus zu denken...
    sei ganz lieb gegrüßt aus Stuttgart
