Honestly, Namibia is such a photogenic place from above, it’s unreal. Now, of course, being down there in the middle of the Kalahari…

Still, this is planet Earth at its most beautiful. I love how satellite imaging both in true and false colour can provide so much information.

Amongst other things you can find “fossilized sand dunes” in the upper right-hand corner. Yes, fossilized sand dunes are a thing.
