After shooting sunrise in Deadvlei on this morning, I arrived at a flooded Tsaucheb river crossing where everyone was impatiently waiting for the water to subside. After about two hours of waiting I decided to head back to the 4x2 parking lot, have lunch and wait for afternoon light to arrive. I had my lunch, a nap, some coffee and I got back in the car and headed back to the dune 45 area. There were heavy rains fast approaching from the East, so I decided to scout these pans just outside the 4x2 parking lot for a bit. The sun broke through the clouds and illuminated the scene in warm afternoon light for about two minutes. I folded out the tripod, put the camera on and attached the filter system as fast as I could with hands shaking from excitement. I got this shot and as I tried to compose one closer to the ground the light was gone...
