As a science fiction fan since I was a little kid - the most impressive moment for me in a story was always the moment we come across with bits and pieces of evidence that there was once a great civilization there. Gigantic city ruins on the horizon of a distant planet is an idea that gives me the chills every time I think about it. Beholding the signs of an unknown civilization is exciting and inspiring. Desert with its majestic vastness reminds me the ocean and space - and... continue reading

It took up to five rejections to finally get one of my photo selected for Editorial License. Initially I was uploading macro shots, but none got selected. The reason was pretty simple.

You may not believe it, but... continue reading

Among the towering red dunes of Namib-Naukluft National Park in the central Namib Desert is an area known as Sossusvlei. It is a strange and alien landscape where, over the thousands of years, the sand has literally rusted. Nearby here there is an even more ancient "place of no return":DeadVlei; its name means "dead marsh" (from English dead, and Afrikaans vlei, a lake or marsh in a valley between the dunes). It is a white clay pan also referred to as "Dooie Vlei" which is the original fully Afrikaans... continue reading
