WINGS OVER NAMIBIA
Rising hundreds of meters off the desert floor, the ancient dunes of the Namib Nauklift National Park in Namibia are unforgettable.
“After soaring high above the vast landscapes of Namibia, we feel blessed and privileged to be alive. We have seen landscapes that have left us breathless with their beauty, terrified at their expanse and lonely in their isolation. There is a certain stillness you find deep inside when viewing the wild open places of Namibia from above…… great herds of buffalo, a lone elephant bull on an endless plain, marching dunes, dancing flamingo, the swirling and meandering Kavango and crashing waves on empty desert shores. It has been a journey and an adventure.”
Photographer Jay Roode, diary entry 15 May 2010.
