Photographer's Note

The Atlantic Coast of Namibia is well known for its shipwrecks. The problem is that many of them are only reachable by plane and others that are barely recognizable, with only a couple of wood beams left.

But there was two in good condition on both sides of Swakopmund, easily accessible. The first one, named Zeila, close to a naked beach without any other foreground than sand, and this one where rock formations stand out for a more dramatic composition. The only problem is that the wreck sank a couple of months before our visit, so as you can see, there's only a sunset left...

You can see the shipwreck that used to be there, the Kolmanskop, on this photo from a TE member.
