This was taken in June of 2006, following record-breaking rains and flooding earlier in the year. Some visitors were disappointed by how much green there was--even on some of the dune slopes, if you look carefully.

Again, very lush. Looks like an oasis!

Fantastic clours you got with this pictures, the gold of the dunes is so beautifull.

Hello Marilyn! Very nice photo, great sharpness and wonderful colours. We were in March, 2006 there and had water in the Vlei. Nice greetings from Germany, Christian

Thanks, Christian, for your comment. Are you going to post any Namibia photos? Considering the quality of your collection, I bet you took some great ones.
