The Image
Deadvlei is one of those locations that every photographer must visit once in their lifetime. It is breath taking and a truly unique location in the Namib-Naukluft Park, Namibia. When I first arrived at this location, I was overwhelmed. There was beauty everywhere and having seen many images from Deadvlei, nothing really prepared me for being here in person. It soon became apparent that photographing this location was going to be more of a challenge that I first anticipated. It seemed that every time I sought out a composition, the trees did not align. It felt very chaotic and busy.
After an hour of wondering and exploring, I happened upon this composition; ‘Trees of Deadvlei’. I was able to use the long lens, thus eliminating the distractions that would have encroached in to the frame had I used a wider focal length. The shape and form of the dominant tree supported by the smaller less shapely trees drew me in. To me they look like a family, but you draw your own conclusions. When I returned home, I was not keen on this image, it felt too familiar, but I was soon reminded of a time when I cared not what other people had photographed and refused to be influenced by the work of others. Now I look at this photograph with a fresh perspective.
