"Namibia, Sossusvlei Dunes, 2009"


Stuart Hahn, MD


This photograph was taken with a Canon 1Ds-Mrk II camera in Namibia at the Sossusvlei Dunes.

Namibia is clearly a land of contrasts. For example, there are the red desert dunes of Sossusvlei, a long, rugged coast, and then a more typical Africa-like area with wildlife in Etosha. Namibia is also the home of the Himba, a semi-nomadic herding people.

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.
