Still 140km to go and look at the length of that shadows.
That last shot, I just forgot to zip up again.

The rest of the shots one can see the effect of the golden hour

Last couple of shots after some serious toasts...

Very few things beat the sunsets in Namibia. I love it

Toe ek jou roete vir die dag sien en hoe laat julle van kolmanskop af weg is het ek geweet julle gaat in die donkerte ry.   :deal:
Ek merk ook op met elke trip Namibia toe raak die paaie in die suide al hoe slegter.   :eek7:   Die skrapers loop nie meer so gereeld op daai paaie nie.  Vroeer jare was daai paaie "highways" gewees.  Ek persoonlik het al 160km/h met pillion en bagasie op daai paaie gery.  Jy sal dit nie vandag kan doen nie.  Maar ten minste maak die scenery op vir die kak paaie.   :thumleft:

Jy is reg Vis Arend EN as hulle Mother se onlangse RR gelees het sou hulle gesien het daai pad is dik sand op plekke. :eek7:
Wonder nogal hoekom die manne nie die D707 eerder gevat het nie? Mickey? Hul petrol sou dit gemaak het vanaf Aus.

Sien uit na die Sossos fotos :thumleft:

Baie mooi foto's. Ek kan die toertje by Kolmanskop sterk aanbeveel. Dit gee jou net so bietjie meer agtergrond.
Work it out !!!!!!

Great report guys, instead of that battle you had on the C27 and as ChrisL mentioned, was there any reason why you did not do the D707?

Keep it coming.

Hoeveel verskil die D707 van die C27
