Light pollution has meant that many of us cannot see stars again at where we live.
If I was fortunate, I may see a comet as well.
Here is a picture taken by my wife last year while travelling in Namibia, Africa.
Here you can see countless stars which make you appreciate the vastness of the universe.
I have climbed some sand dunes before but never as high as these sand dunes in Namibia.
These rules, although quite common sense, should best be followed.
You stay on the dark side of the dune – so that the sand is not as hot.
Don’t forget to bring snacks and water.
Have a mask ready in case the wind blows up a lot of sand.
These pictures were taken by my wife earlier last month in Namibia, Africa.
I like looking at a big flock of flamingos.
Greater flamingos (Phoenicopterus ruber) breed at large, flooded shallow salt pans as well as coastal mudflats, inland dams, small ephemeral rivers, river mouths and sewage treatment works. Flocks of tens to tens of thousands, usually with lesser flamingos, are common.
The population is scattered in southern, central and northern Namibia.
Their long legs are especially adapted for wading in the water.
Both pictures were taken by my wife last month in Namibia, Africa.
I like sunrise, but as always, I am too lazy to get up very early in the morning.
As a result, I ended up with few sunrise pictures and lots of sun set pictures in my archive.
The other picture mainly shows the Namibia sky and clouds.
All photos were taken by my wife in her trip to Namibia, Africa last month.
Wildlife photography can be a difficult subject for the ordinary tourists.
The animals need first to be located and you are not able to get very close to them.
The camera will need to be hand held. The zoom means that the picture will become coarser, the shake and the zoom mean that you do not have a picture of good resolution.
Here are a couple of photos with baby elephants in them, all taken by my wife in Namibia. Please enjoy.
Here are two close up pictures taken of the elephants in Namibia, Africa.
The direction of the sunlight has exaggerated a bit of the wrinkles on the skin.
The credit of the pictures go to my wife who took the photos earlier last month.
This is an impressionist picture; as it was taken at a considerable distance with a hand held zoom.
It can be compared to an impressionist painting that even the grass is a bit fuzzy.
There is a silence in the wilderness just before this animal appears.
Many animals are so frightened and fled before or when the lion appears.
He is the king of beasts; a symbol of strength and bravery.
