Early morning though the arch at the Spitzkoppe in Namibia DSC_2168-2



I woke up early enough before the sun showed up and set up my tripod so as to capture the lady standing way out on the rocks and getting the full arch into the picture.

Here at Spitzkoppe you’ll find bald granite peaks popping up theatrically out of the surrounding flat plains and some of the most beautiful camping in Namibia. Gross Spitzkoppe is the highest peak at about 600m above the desert floor, or 1728m above sea level. There’s a riot of giant boulders and secret caves, somewhere you can camp in peace or knock yourself out with a festival of hiking or climbing.

I took this photo during my 4 week trip to Namibia in May 2017.
