Dead Vlei (or Dead Valley) is a part of Sossusvlei National Park in the Namib desert in Namibia.
I wanted the sun shining directly into the lens to show the glare and at the same time having bright enough exposure. So I took this picture with a branch partially covering the sun.

Da kommt diese unerträgliche Hitze und Trockenheit perfekt rüber, als wenn man selbst dort direkt in der Sonne brutzelt. Ich bin beeindruckt.
