Over recent years, photographers have flocked to places like Iceland, the Greek islands, and Bali. It might now seem that there's nowhere new or unique to explore. You'd be wrong to think so. This is an untapped gem you have to see.
As high-quality camera gear has become more affordable to hobbyists and travel information available at the tap of a finger on a phone, stunning images from the around the world have become par for the course. Taking a tour to Iceland to shoot its majestic mountains and incredible waterfalls or catching boats through the Aegean Sea to display the marvels of Greece has become all too familiar for photographers, both professional and amateur. And why not? They're stunning places. But it does seem at times like the same photos, no matter how incredible, keep appearing again and again. Wouldn't it be nice to find uncharted territory?
That idea brings us to this great video brought to you by Andy Mumford, in which he explores the wild Skeleton Coast in Namibia, Southwest Africa. It got the name of Skeleton Coast because of how many capsized boats and shipwrecks occur there, and along that stretch you can see many ghosts of ships left to rot and rust in the waters. Logistically, it's a difficult place to get to, but it's just starting to open up now to photographers. What can you expect when you get there? For starters, huge orange sand dunes meeting gorgeous cobalt ocean. But that's just a taster. Watch the video to see how amazing this place is, and let me know if you're interested in putting it on your to-go list.
