The desert is a place of many contrasts. I saw a bone dry place flooded after torrential rainfall, barren terrian, but also beautiful manifestations of life. The Witgat Tree that can be found in the arid regions of Southern Afica is such an example. The white bark contrasts with the black desert varnish that covers the rocks in this part of the Karoo Desert. It is hard to capture the black and white in one image.
