Very nice dude

Last time we were there it was said that the ghost town would be given to the dunes. That no attempt would be made to fight the sands again.

Are they holding true to their promise or are they going to milk Kolmanskop forever? Lovely place. Will be sad to see it go but also poetic. Keeping it alive artificially seems wrong somehow

It is still controlled by the mine, with the new entrance just next door.

I went in before sunrise on what they call a "photgraphic" permit. It was awesome. There was no one else around except for the security guard who went into the main hall to play piano, still dark, it was really a ghost town, haha

One of the highlights on our trip for sure, probably top of the list.

I really envy you. The light in the morning is so much better for taking photos. We arrived there at midday last year, and I took some nice shots, but in the the harsh sunlight it will NEVER look as good as this.
