13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

Deadvlei, Namibia. We woke up at around 4 in the morning in order to make it in time to Deadvlei before sunrise. I was down on the clay soil already preparing my shots mentally when the sun peaked above the dunes surrounding Deadvlei. It was a beautiful yet eerie spectacle.
