S.W. Seal (1976) Skeleton Coast Namibia

Our drive through the National Park was quite boring, because it was very cloudy (which is the worst thing that can happen to a photographer). Also, we realized that you are driving most of the time not directly at the sea, but behind the dunes, so you do not actually see the sea. And finally, those tracks towards the sea that were open were not really suitable for our sedan. Too bad! But about 20 kilometer before the Ugabmund Gate (the southern entrance to the National Park) you will see a sign announcing the ship wreck of the Seal. The "Seal" sunk in June 1976, and both the ship and the sign have seen better times as well - please visit Brian McMorrow's excellent photo gallery to compare his 2002 photo to my 2006 photo.
