Close to Sossusvlei, Deadvlei is a clay pan characterized by dark, dead camel thorn trees contrasted against the white pan floor and red sand dunes.

I like the starkness of this image, even though it is a colorful scene. Nice shadow of the tree and I especially like the lack of footprints.

Agree with Joe.
Super minor technical nit...wish that the right tree branch didn't touch the top of the dune

Lovely simple graphics- beautiful composition-love the shadow. Pleasing colors too. Now that John has mentioned it...that branch...but as he says- very minor nit.
