Dead Vlei, Namibia 2009

"Dead Vlei, Namibia 2009"
by Stuart Hahn, MD, is a photograph taken
at a salt/clay pan or dry lake bed at Sossusvlei,
Namibia called "Dead Vlei." The word "Vlei"
refers to a shallow grass depression or small valley.
The trees are Camel Thorn Trees that died when the
water vanished. Dr Hahn can see a number of
symbolic interpretations of these long dead trees.

Dr Hahn retired from The Permanente Medical
Group in 2010. He previously was the Clinical Director
at the Sacramento Regional Appointment and
Advice Call Center. He has been seriously exploring
photography since 2000 and has an interest in both
wildlife and landscape photography.
