Galleries / Special: Namibia
Deadvlei, Namibia. As almost all Deadvlei images you see are taken with sunlight, I decided to take a different approach and use the moon. I planned my visit carefully so that I could use the light of the rising moon, about two hours or so after the sun had set. The fact that the ground here is very light really helped to brighten the foreground, often a problem with night photography.
To create a better visual hierarchy and a clear focal point, I used a small flashlight to light paint the middle tree. I really like the way the trees are leaning and how the little silhouetted trees in the background are neatly spread out.
