The red dunes, some of the highest in the world (reaching 400 meters), and white salt pans of Sossusvlei in Namibia are worth the squat for the perfect photo🦵📸 If you want to catch the dunes at sunrise, you’ll need to stay inside the park at the Sossus Dune Lodge or camp at Sesriem because park gates don’t open until sunrise 🌅 #traveltrove
Night Camp in the Dunes
On a pretty much windless night, we decided to roll the dice and camp on the sand itself in hopes that the wind didn’t change its mind by the next day. It stayed calm. Being in this most remote of dune fields the silence was perfect. Half a moon illuminated thin clouds high above as they moved over the course of this two minute exposure. Our two tents were lit by dim headlamps strategically placed. It was a magical night in the desert wilderness with no other souls around for miles.
Another edition of #waxpackwednesday (swipe to open the package, but don't get excited)
Arrakis... Dune... desert planet... As someone who has read almost all the books (gave up after his son ran it into the ground for 7+ books) I'm still not sure how I feel about this movie. It's an interesting presentation, but the *tone* is off. Nobody quite knew what they were making here. But at least it's interesting, more than I can say for many flicks.
