Week 22 - Martian sunset at Spitzkoppe - EPx

Soon, I will have the opportunity to visit Namibia again.

This pending visit inspired me to select this photo, which was taken near Spitzkoppe in Namibia, as photo of the week. 

The Spitzkoppe, is a group of bald granite peaks in the Namib desert. The granite rocks of Spitzkoppe already have a red-ish by themselves. The setting sun emphasises the redness, resulting in an almost Martian atmosphere. Only the trees remind us of the fact that we are still on good old earth.
