Monday Geology Picture: Bogenfels Arch, Sperrgebiet, Namibia

I’m up in Namibia this week, so I thought it would be appropriate to share a picture that I took over the weekend of Bogenfels Rock Arch, which is located in the Sperrgebiet region of Namibia. I previously posted a similar picture back in 2015. See that post for some more information on the arch and the Sperrgebiet.

Monday Geology Picture: A Sand-Filled Room in Kolmanskop, Namibia

For this week’s “Monday Geology Picture” here’s a picture of a spectacular sand-filled room in a house in the ghost town of Kolmanskop, Namibia. I visited this diamond mining ghost town back in 2014, and you can find more pictures from that visit here. If you ever visit Namibia I highly recommend a visit to Kolmanskop!

Monday Geology Picture: Desert Migmatite

I was a little sporadic with my “Monday Geology Picture” posts in 2016. I’ll try to be more consistent in 2017! To start off, here is a shot of a lovely little hill of migmatite in the town of Lüderitz, which is located at the edge of the Namib desert in the beautiful country of Namibia. I took this picture when I was up in Namibia back in 2014. Happy New Year… and …

Monday Geology Picture: Namibian Night Sky

My husband and I spent some time doing field work in the Sperrgebiet region of Namibia earlier this year. We camped out in the desert for a few days. We spent our days looking at some fantastic geology, and we spent our nights looking at some fantastic views of the night sky. We were quite far from any towns, so we had very little light pollution and could see many …

Monday Geology Picture: Pink Pan

Apologies for the recent gap in my blogging. I’ve been busy travelling for work, and our home internet connection was not working for a couple of weeks. We’ve also been suffering from regular power outages here in South Africa. Anyway, to make up for my recent quietness, I’m sharing a spectacular picture for this week’s “Monday Geology Picture” post. This picture was taken close to the border between South Africa …

However, I have another “Geology Word of the Week” post coming up soon, so stay tuned! Today I want to share another view of the abandoned diamond mining town of Kolmanskop. I’m currently in Namibia for business, and I flew over Kolmanksop earlier today and managed to snap a few …

Monday Geology Picture: Sand Sign at Kolmanskop

For this week’s “Monday Geology Picture” I’m sharing another picture from Kolmanskop, an abandoned diamond mining town in Namibia. Many of the buildings at Kolmanskop have been partially filled with sand. You can see more of my pictures from Kolmanskop here. When you drive along the paved road near Kolmanskop, you pass a roadside warning sign that says “Sand”. I suppose that the sign is warning drivers about sand covering the …

Kolmanskop in Pictures

Last month I spent some time in Namibia for work. During one of my days off, I was able to spend some time visiting Kolmanskop. Located in the Namib Desert a few miles outside of the seaside town of Lüderitz, Kolmanskop is a “Ghost Town” that is the remains of a former diamond mining town. Kolmanskop was founded shortly after diamonds were discovered in the region in 1908 and was abandoned …
