WPC: Abandoned

Share a photo of ruins, a desolate place or your idea of a wasteland is the task for this week’s WordPress Challenge.

Nauklauft Desert

There’s a desolate poetry to the extraordinary landscape of the Namib Naukluft desert.  Here in the section, between the Kuiseb and Swakop rivers, the vast quartzite gravel plains rise up to badlands and the rugged Naukluft Mountains run along the eastern edge of the desert.  It is a strange land, of boundless expanses and repeating horizons.   Although it seems barren and lifeless, fauna and flora have adapted perfectly to its harsh regime.  Come the rains and the dry plains are filled with waving grasses which bring the herds of antelope to graze the ephemeral pastures.
