A picture just like this one is on the cover of just about every guidebook of Namibia. These trees are just hanging out, waiting and hoping for the water to come back. In the meantime, mixed with the orange sand and blue sky they make for some of our most brilliant images of the entire trip. Sossusvlei was just inspiring, even at dawn.
