Dead In The Desert

Deadvlei, a stunning display of dead, sun-scorched acacia trees in a white clay pan surrounded by some of the tallest sand dunes in the world. It is quite the otherworldly experience to visit, particularly before dawn when the sun slowly creeps up, casting lengthy shadows everywhere.

I no longer remember quite when I first heard of Deadvlei, but it seems like ever since I have, I keep seeing it pop up everywhere. Truly one of nature's more unique displays. Even in death, there can be beauty.
