This is the 6th trip report from my latest safari to Namibia You can read my Namibia trip report (Part 1 - Skeleton Coast) entry, Namibia trip report (Part 2 - Serra Cafema) entry, my Namibia trip report (Part 3 - Namib-Naukluft), Namibia trip report (Part 4 - Lüderitz and theSperrgebiet) and finally my Namibia trip report (Part 5 Namib Rand and Wolwedans) if you have not already done so.
Since I had already visited the Sossusvlei area on my first trip, I will only post images from my second round in the area in less than 2 weeks. I did take more time to photograph people from my group performing their work, so most of my images from the second visit to the area had less to do with 'portfolio' types of images and more images to help me illustrate and market future trips to Namibia.
I am also writing up an overall Namibia trip summary with more detailed explanation of my experiences with the Sony equipment. Overall very very positive, with some small nits here and there.
I have started a waiting list for a 2010 Namibia trip in either May or September of next year, so if you are interested in such a trip please send me an email to email@example.com or use the contact form on this blog. John Paul Caponigro will be the leader for this exciting trip, and the trip will likely include Kolmanskop, Sossuslvei and the Skeleton Coast. A truly amazing trip, as I cannot wait to return to the Skeleton Coast in future years.
