Southern Namibia. The Tsauchab river cuts into the dunes and every 10 years pushes in enough water to feed the dry pans with a little water. The constant moving dunes had cut off Deadvlei pan from this water source and it now only get water from rare local rains. I wanted to capture the feeling of lifelessness of Deadvlei, which at one point supported a number of trees. I found a water runoff pattern on the pan that resembled a tree, symbolizing an era that had passed. - Isak Pretorius

Kolmanskop, a town in the Namib desert in southern Namibia, was once a rich diamond mining village. Within a 40 year span the town lived, flourished and then died. Richer diamond deposits were discovered further south, operations were moved, nature took its course and the desert sands reclaimed their space. Thank you, Álvaro Sánchez-Montañés, for capturing these hauntingly beautiful images!

There is a 700 hectare mud pan in the Southern Region of Namibia that turns into an endless stand of lilies after the first heavy summer rains. The lilies germinate, grow and die in less than 10 days and hundreds of thousands of elephant beetles appear and dissapear with them. There hasn’t been much scientific study of this unbelievable natural phenomenon, but something like this disappears quite easily in Namibia’s endless variety of mindboggling natural anomalies...
