13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sand-filled Room at Kolmanskop, Namiiba

Seeing this sand-filled room with a bathtub looking like it was "surfing" down the sand was truly fascinating. The deserted town of Kolmanskop - also locally referred to as "Ghost Town" - is full of interesting structures and items left behind only to become one with the environment created by the blowing desert sands.
