Entry Description

Winter morning in one of the most remoted and deserted area on the planet in northwestern Namibia bordering with Angola , where the river Kunene from the Hartmann valley meets the absolute desert and land (kaokoland) of the impressive antelope gemsbuck (Oryx gazella). This kind of antelope I was expecting in the middle of nowhere , from the top of a sand dune with my telephoto lens.I knew that the Oryx usaly crosses this path of the desert in order to quench the thirst in the river Kunene .
