16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
Solitaire, Namibia

Solitaire is a remote settlement in Central Namibia, and is has been a stopover for travelers for more than 60 years. It is the only place for gas and food in the 5 hours journey that crosses the Namib Desert to the coastal town of Walvis Bay. It features a gas station, a lodge and a bakery, nationwide famous for its apple pie, the best of Namibia. I didn’t have the pleasure of trying it during our roadtrip: we were short on time and I got to chose between tasting the cake and taking photos: the hard choices of a travel photographer!
