Obwohl ich dieses Video schon vor zwei Jahren auf Vimeo gepostet hatte, ist es noch nicht in meinen YouTube-Kanal und hier ins Blog vorgedrungen. Im Rückblick sehr surreal, die Weihnachtszeit im ersten Pandemiejahr.

Euch allen Frohe Weihnachten und einen Guten Rutsch ins Neue Jahr!

Already posted to Vimeo two years ago, this video never made it into my YouTube channel and the blog here. Very surrealistic, Christmas time back then in 2020.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to y’all!

Gamsberg Drive

Back on the Gamsberg, Namibia after a long CoViD hiatus. After the heavy rain season in spring 2022, the access pad (gravel road going up the mountain) was severely damaged and not passable for even a 4WD. During summer Nic of adjacent Farm Weener and his workers did a superb job in repairing the pad. So in August we went up …

The video shows uphill and downhill on the challenging access pad.

If you want to get a glimpse of the night sky on top of Gamsberg, have a look at my latest astro time-lapse video.

Special thanks to:
Nic for getting us safely up and down,
