Photographer's Note

Petrified acacia tree in Deadvlei, in the Namib-Naukluft National Park.

Deadvlei - the Valley of the Dead - was cut off from the main Sossusvlei valley by a wandering sand dune approximately 900 years ago. Cut off from regular water, it has become a burning salt pan. The petrified acacia trees are as old as the vlei itself.
