Sunset Sunday – Sossusvlei Lodge, Namibia

Before the tour took the journey from Sossusvlei to Swakopmund across the desert and barren landscape of Namibia, we stayed at the Sossusvlei Lodge. Just a few kilometers from the entrance to the famous and impressive sand dunes of Sossusvlei the group settled in for the first of two nights.

The looming tour of the dunes, the very reason people travel to this remote part of the world, would offer sweet dreams. And because after our early rise to witness the sun rise to a level the perfectly splits the dune to 1/2 shade and 1/2 sun, an early night was scheduled.

But, with all that still ahead of us, I settled in at the cozy bar at an outside table with a view. The thirst created by the desert travel needed to be quenched with a cold frosty local beer (or two). And at no better time than sunset. The next day would be active, but not now. Now, all I did was watch the sun set over a mountain and illuminate the fields and the vast, seemingly endless landscape. That evening, I took this image and then toasted to adventure that still awaited.

        It’s true that people seem to respect someone who calls themselves a photographer more when their equipment is deemed professional. But remember the best camera in the world in the hands of someone who doesn’t have an eye or natural creativity means nothing. Your equipment may help you, but it does not make you the photographer you weren’t already!
