I have fallen head over heals with Namibian farm scapes. I’ll choose a farm every time for a photo shoot – every day!
Most travelers prefer to travel to Namibia during the Winter (May – August), due to the extreme heat that can be experienced during summer in certain parts of Namibia.
But what does the difference look like?
This isn’t to convince you that our summers (our wet season) is better to travel in, it’s just a matter of fact observation. The difference is quite staggering and if you are a landscape photographer, summer might just be better for you – heat and all.
I have been after this photo for a while… I’m still not hundred percent happy, but I think we are getting somewhere.

It is not only gold… it is spectacularly gold. With every inch that the sun moved skywards, the scenery in front of me just lit up… and melt my heart.
A selection of photos that I’ll simply call; Golden Falls
