Monday Geology Picture: Kolmanskop from Above
Posted by Evelyn Mervine
Apologies for the short hiatus in my blogging. I’ve been travelling and generally very busy with work these past two weeks. 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 aerial pictures of the town with my phone. I previously visited Kolmanskop on the ground, and I shared some pictures here and here. However, I like these aerial views of Kolmanskop. They show the small buildings surrounded by a sea of sand, with the real sea sparkling blue on the horizon.
