Ghost rain hangs from a retreating storm cloud over the mountains of the Namib Rand as last light crawls up the highest peaks in the area. This specific shot was taken on Excelsior and it looks onto the plains of Dina.

The Namib Rand conservancy is a private nature reserve that is formed by a collection of consolidated farms that have been bought from farmers by people who use it simply to enjoy nature. Most of the fences on these farms have been taken down, allowing the wildlife of the area free movement between the desert wilderness and these farms that provide plentiful grazing after the summer rains.

In a world that is primarily just being destroyed and harvested for personal benefit, it's good to see nature conservation on such a scale being done completely privately.
