This is the first glimps that one gets of Dead Vlei, as soon as one gets on top of the last dune on the shortest route.

Hundreds of people visit Dead Vlei every day and to get there, one has to walk. There is a much longer route of approximately 5 kilometers for the more adventurous tourist. To do this route, one has to be very fit, as the dunes are really high on this route.

Below is a number of photos that I took of Dead Vlei and of the dead trees that Dead Vlei was named after.

Interesting texture of the dry clay at Dead Vlei.

There are many other dead trees in the surrounding area too. Dead trees are one of my favourite objects to photograph and therefore you will see a number of landscape photos with dead trees in them.
