Weekly Image #6 – Cape Cross Beach

The beach at Cape Cross, Namibia.

Cape Cross Beach is one of the weirdest places I have ever visited. Not because of what it is (your average beach), but in which place it is what it is – if that makes sense. Cape Cross is located at the Namibian coast, and everyone who has ever visited Namibia knows that the country boasts a rather typical African appearance – bush and desert, Mopane trees, loads of dust, antelopes, cheetahs, elephants … But as we left Damaraland and approached the coast, the temperatures around us dropped to about 14°C, it started to drizzle (in the dry season!) and the landscape around us started to remind me more of Iceland than Namibia. The light that day was very peculiar, there was a purple tint to the clouds and the whole place looked desolate and beautiful at the same time.

Shot with the Pentax K3 and DA L 18-55 WR lens at f5.6, 1/400th sec. and ISO 200 at 35 mm.
