10th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Lone Acacia, Sossusvlei Sand Dunes

A lone acacia tree stands in the burnt sienna sands of the Namibian desert against the rising sun. “The acacia tree provided a sense of scale and a sense of the beautiful desolation of the place,” says the photographer, who used a Nikon 300S.
