Talk about "boondocks," Solitaire Namibia has got to take the cake. Located on the Tropic of Capricorn between Wallis Bay and the Namib desert dunes to the south, it is a desolate place where 75 years ago a Dutchman bought some land and started a sheep ranch.
It's so dry there that even sheep couldn't handle the arid climate, and so, the endeavor went belly-up. It somehow attracted enough people to turn the place into a hamlet, however, equipped with the only petrol station within 150 km! Today it's a quaint tourist
stop.

That's very dramatic well-balanced pick to enjoy for me so far away, so close now!I hope there is enough to drink+eat for everybody!Thanks.

Hi Michael,
Fantastic image with great depth and clarity. Coming from Namibia I can very clearly remember this little place and hope to return soon.
erwin...

Terrific shot. Would love to see it from a wider angle, but this is a nice shot.
