Meeting Namib

by Roberto Moiola

During my second travel to Namibia i experienced the flying tour over Namibia’s most spectacular scenic wonders. I board the flight in Swakopmund airport, in the heart of Namib desert. Aereal flight starts over the Kuiseb River bed and continues on towards Sesriem and the Sesriem Canyon, then to the highest sand dunes in the world at Sossusvlei. These towering dunes are breathtaking, i think that Sossusvlei area is one of the most beautiful place i ever seen in the world.After this area we fly over the Diamond Restricted Area and over the coastline where i took this shot. If you travel to Namibia dont forget to have this daily tour that offers spectacular views and excellent photographic opportunities.
Equipment: Canon EOS 5D mark II - Canon EF 17-40
