We are at our third camp out of three on my northern and central Namibia workshop, and this trip is turning out to be quite productive photographically. Our first camp was along the desolate skeleton coast of northen Namibia. There we photographed many different types of scenes: sand dunes, the foggy coastline, desert elephants, gemsbok (oryx), river canyons, and transition zones in between the different zones. After three nights at the Skeleton Coast Camp, we headed to Serra Cafema Camp. Serra Cafema is known to be the most remote and luxurious camp in all of southern Africa. I was last there in the spring of 2006 when I co-led a trip with Michael Reichmann.
Serra Cafema Camp yielded some amazing scenes, yet it is a difficult location to capture in photographs.
We are now at the Namib Naukluft Park, home to the tall sand dunes as far as the eyes can see. After three nights here, I will head back to Windhoek to say goodbye to John Paul and the rest of the workshop group. I will head out with my second group to explore the southern and central part of the country, which is no less dramatic.
