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 kilomters from the enterance 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.

Happy Sunset Sunday.

just snapped this photo before I ordered my second local beer....

I wanted to share a photo I took in Namibia on the road from Sossusvlei to Swakopmund. To me this photo speaks. It simply and softly says, “Africa.”
