12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Bigger than Death

It was 5pm when we reached the top of the last dune before getting to Deadvlei. It looked like a Roman theater surrounded by sand dunes. The dead trees blackened by the heat and sun stood in the middle of the parched clay soil. I got to the bottom and waited for the light to get better and for most people to leave before taking the shot.
