Our campsite for our first night in Namibia was the Canon Roadhouse near Fish River Canyon. We arrived very late after spending most of the afternoon photographing the sun setting against beautiful quiver trees.
Driving the long dusty roads at night, with no traffic and only a flicker of light from distant farm houses, you really do get to experience the true nature of an African night. Our arrival at the Canon Roadhouse found us tired and hungry, we hardly even noticed the relics of the motor world scattered around us. The Roadhouse, we discovered the next morning, is a monument to the automotive world, decorated with all kinds of memorabilia dedicated to the vintage car. One can get lost there for hours, the closer you look the more you find.
Driving out towards the Fish River Canyon, we again noticed the variety of old vehicles lying in their final resting place – it made for a great photographic opportunity.
