Namibia: The road to Fish River Canyon 6

Fish River Canyon

This photo was taken at sunset. Extremely difficult to shoot at this time as the canyon is deep and dark and the landscape was very illuminated. Best I could do. Lucky we have RAW!

"The Fish River canyon consists of an upper canyon, where river erosion was inhibited by hard gneiss bedrocks, and a lower canyon formed after erosion had finally worn through the gneisses. Both parts have been declared a national monument in 1962. Upstream, the river runs through horizontal dolomite strata; these metamorphic rocks formed part of the canyon. "
