Portfolio 10 Travel Namibia SKELETON COAST BY ANDY BIGGS Andy peered through the scratched airplane window and wondered how he could convey the giddy heights of the Namibian sand- dunes. He didn't have long to decide. The dense sea fog from the cold Benguela Current was being sucked inland over the Skeleton Coast, and the sun would soon sizzle it away. But for an hour the fog draped itself over the endless sandy crests and corrugations. " I wanted to capture the way shafts of sun piercing through the mist highlight the textures of the sand," says Andy. The huddle of Cape fur seals - a dark smudge on the narrow strip of beach - give a sense of the vastness of this wilderness.

Heritage Travel Namibia 11 ANCIENT SURVIVORS BY KOOS VAN DER LENDE Two leaves, a stem base and roots. That's all there is to a welwitschia. Yet this simple arrangement means the plant can cope with the most desiccated of environments, where no more than 15mm of rain falls each year. It takes root where no other plant would dare try. Its curved leaves, split with age and singed by the hot ground, funnel the morning dew down to the roots. Some individuals could be more than 1500 years old. These living fossils are so unlike anything else they warrant a genus all their own - and a classic portrait. Koos photographed his subject, which is at least 200 years old, in Namibia's Messum Crater, close to the Skeleton Coast. " I loved the circle the leaf made on the left- hand side, and used 12 refl ector boards to bounce the sunlight back to get the detail."
