Deadvlei is a white clay pan located near the more famous salt pan of Sossusvlei, inside the Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia.The remaining skeletons of the trees, which are believed to be about 900 years old, are now black because the intense sun has scorched them. My aim was to i have some abstract formations with these trees and For this it was necessary to i have close contact with these eternal monuments. Very soon I felt the endless endurance of them through the time!!!
