EPOC: Namibia: desert and fog in Swakopmund



During my journey through Namibia with Kevin Richberg for the 30 Postcards Project we have visited the town of Swakopmund.

Surrounded by the desert and the Atlantic Ocean, Swakopmund has a interesting mild desert climate, which means that temperatures ranges between 15°C (59°F) to 25°C (77°F). I have to admit that it’s a surprising situation: temperatures are reasonable, there is water, lot of humidity in the air and still the desert is everywhere: unfortunately the soil is not fertile, with the desert sand occupying all the place.

Hence you can find yourself in the middle of the desert in a foggy day.
