[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
Talk about "boondocks," Solitaire Namibia has got to take the cake. Located on the Tropic of Capricorn between Wallis Bay and the Namib desert dunes to the south, it is a desolate place where 75 years ago a Dutchman bought some land and started a sheep ranch.
It's so dry there that even sheep couldn't handle the arid climate, and so, the endeavor went belly-up. It somehow attracted enough people to turn the place into a hamlet, however, equipped with the only petrol station within 150 km! Today it's a quaint tourist
stop.

That's very dramatic well-balanced pick to enjoy for me so far away, so close now!I hope there is enough to drink+eat for everybody!Thanks.

Hi Michael,
Fantastic image with great depth and clarity. Coming from Namibia I can very clearly remember this little place and hope to return soon.
erwin...

Terrific shot. Would love to see it from a wider angle, but this is a nice shot.
