dunes reflecting in water

The year 2006 brought new life to the Namib desert, Namibia, South Africa.

Every year the grass seeds are blown from the grasslands in central South Africa over the desert up to the west coast of Namibia. Many small animals and birds benefit from the seeds and dry grass, but in the year 2006 the seeds were stopped by rain. The desert turned into grassland creating nourishment that will last a long time.
The rain started January, it is now end March and the grass are already in seed.
Nature knows when to rush.

The naked rocks and sand are covered in a soft grass coat. These photos were taken from the lodge
