Namibia. Ben Simon Rehn. BEHANCE

Namibia. Ben Simon Rehn

A trip of 12 days driving around this beautiful country. 

After starting in Windhoek, our first destination was the Namib Desert with its scenic place, Sossusvlei, a white salt/clay pan decorated with dead trees.

Our route brought us all the way to the coast near Swakopmund and Walvis Bay were we could observe thousands of flamingos bathing between sanddunes and ocean water.

This time, I finally had the possibility to see the place where the desert meets the Atlantic Ocean. A mindblowing place where I will return for sure.  

As our route took us further up north, we visited the desert elephants, the himba, a tribe of nomadics and ended up in the Etosha National Park to find wildlife. 

But through all this journey, it was this one evening at a well known waterhole where the true African magic took place. 

A herd of 40-50 elephants showed up just when the sun was about to set and gave us a truly spectacular encounter. An hour that felt like minutes.

Lastly I finished my trip with a local flight above the vast Namibian landscape and tired but happy,I took the long flight back home the day after.

TROPICAL REEFS - part I

Reefs are bars of rock, sand, coral or similar material, lying beneath the surface of water. Many reefs result from natural, abiotic processes like deposition of sand or wave erosion planing down rock outcrops, but the best known reefs are the tropical coral reefs developed through biotic processes dominated by corals and coralline algae.

Tropical coral reefs are the most diverse marine ecosystems on earth, giving shelter to thousands of animal species. Many millions of people depend on fisheries, 
tourism and coastal protection provided by healthy coral reefs. 
Yet today, coral reefs are dying at an alarming rate. Coral bleaching is caused by rising water temperatures which, when severe, kills the coral.

My images show the beauty of these unique coral and algae systems. I hope they remind all that what we do on land impacts our oceans.
