"Canyon Window"
Fish River Canyon, Namibia
Ais-Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park, Southern Africa

Good morning G+! I've got 5 days to go before becoming a father for the 2nd time!

I felt like sharing one from the archives this morning...this was taken at the starting point of the very gruelling 6-day 90km hike through the Fish River Canyon in Namibia. At this point you start a very steep descent down to the Canyon floor. It's a rough trail with large boulders, thick sand and round riverine rocks to go over and through, and it's very psychological as there really is one only one way out - and that is through.

This was taken long before I knew much about proper landscape photography, but I like the view through a window here. The Fish River Canyon is the 2nd largest in the world, behind the Grand Canyon of course. It was overcast and raining slightly, strange weather for this desert landscape in winter.

Enjoy your week!!
