Dead Vlei photo as seen on National Geographic
Petrified Camel Thorn Trees (Acacia erioloba) in the salt pan at Dead Vlei (Sossusvlei, Namib Naukluft Park, Namibia).
The trees are estimated to have lived over a 1000 years ago when there was water in the pan.
This is one of my published National Geographic photos.
