RAIN MOTIF | NAMIB IN FLOOD
The most special part of rain at Sossusvlei is the incredible patterns it leaves behind on the dunes. There are so many variables that determine these patterns - velocity, direction and size of raindrops as well as the direction of the wind. Amazingly the geological make-up of each dune (differs east to west) meaning that every storm leaves a unique signature on the dunes. Then it only takes a few hours of sunlight for the patterns to disappear completely, making these incredibly unique, fleeting works of natural art.
