Namibia, Southern Africa – 2017
Spring of 2017 found my family heading off on an epic bucket-list journey through the wilds of Namibia in southern Africa. Traveling with Southern Cross Safaris, we planned to spend two weeks on backcountry safari, sleeping in tents and utilizing their custom-built “Unimog” off-road vehicle to penetrate deeper into the bush then normally travelled. What follows is a few (lots) of my favorite images from the trip, which were whittled down from the more than 3000 images I captured. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!
We start with a shot of a Namibian donkey cart, or Kalahari Ferrari, the quintessential Namibian 4×4 form of transportation seen throughout southern Africa. These fellas bid adieu to us as we left the paved roads a little over an hour into the trip, and for the better part of the next two weeks.

The Grossmünster church is a Romanesque-style Protestant church dating back to the 12th century. The twin towers of the Grossmünster are considered two of Zürich’s most recognized landmarks. Construction began around 1100 and the church was inaugurated around 1220. According to legend, the Grossmünster was founded by Charlemagne, whose horse fell to its knees over the tombs of Felix and Regula, Zürich’s two patron saints. Charlemagne thus had a church built as a monastery on the spot.
This long exposure shot (~2 min) of the church looks across the Münsterbrücke, a pedestrian and road bridge dating back to 1836 which spans the Limmat river.
