12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
The Journey

The hot air balloon took off early in the morning. As we proceeded higher, the full beauty of the Namib became more apparent. The vastness and emptiness of the land with the sun starting to rise in the horizon was magical viewed from above. Suddenly, in the middle of this immensity, I saw another hot air balloon traveling away from us. It looked miniscule.
