About This Spot

This massive tree is another one of the Deadvlei celebrities. It has more branches than most of the other trees as well as a fantastic shape. It can be photographed from almost any angle and in combination with a large variety of the surrounding trees. It works well with a wide angle if you have some interest in the sky – just make sure you get adequately low so that the branches are all above the dunes, as in the first image above.
