In camping in the Namibian desert near Sossusvlei, we got to see both the sunset and sunrise in this most extraordinary of places. The dunes themselves were of many colours but when day turned into night the dunes seemed to burn particularly bright. A glow almost emanated from them. To sit and just watch the changing colours, shifts in the sand and the stretching shadows was utterly absorbing.
The area may look barren but there is plenty of beauty to behold.
