Surreal Photos of Deadvlei

April 23, 2013 | in Travel

In the heart of Namib Desert, in a clay plateau Sossuvlei, is located this unique place named Deadvlei, which can be literally translated as Dead Valley; and this name is perfect for this place.

It may seem otherwise, but these are real photographs, not paintings. This place looks like a scene from a movie about aliens or like a product of an artist’s imagination. More than nine centuries ago, there was flowing a river, which fed water to the plants. Now it’s all gone. The dunes pushed the river away, and the trees were left to die.
