The Dead Vlei is a dry clay and sand pan ("vlei") near the Sossusvlei. The intense colours - blue sky, orange sand dunes and beige ground - and the over 500 years old dead skeleton trees form a surreal scenery.

Very nice and clean picture with a sharp color contrast between the desert and the tree trunk and the hill in the back. Great shot!
