Escape, 2019. Deadvlei, Namibia.

Photo by Lizane Louw

At Dead Vlei, time stops. The silence is deafening.

Dead Vlei at Sossusvlei in Namibia is a salt and clay pan surrounded by orange-red Namib desert dunes. These high dunes have drawn me to Namib a couple of times in my life.

Sossusvlei is located in the southern part of the Namib Desert, in the Namib-Naukluft National Park of Namibia. This is my favourite place on earth. The landscape is a desert still life, unchanged. The fresh air and vast open spaces made me realise how small I am.

I value my heritage as an Afrikaner and an African. 

Photo created on a visit to Dead Vlei in 2019.

Behold the timeless allure of the desert through this fine art photograph I created in the desert. The dunes' golden hues and graceful contours weave a tapestry of eternal beauty. I invite you to lose yourself in this ancient landscape's vastness. Let the shifting sands and soft golden light awaken a sense of wonder and reverence as you connect with the essence of timelessness that permeates this photograph—a photograph created in the oldest desert in the world.
