Wildlife in Namib desert in Namibia

>A recent trip took me to Swakopmund on the coast of Namibia for a week of work.

It turned out surprisingly successful, especially given the amount of traffic on the river on Friday night with party boats going up and down with all their garish lights - great for light trails.

I found a couple of look outs that created good places to shoot from and others under the Story Bridge itself.

The settings I ended up using was - 30secs, ISO 200 and f9 seemed to give the best results. I found doing a bracket a stop apart was most efficient as then you don't have to wait for each image to write to the card - this was significant as a lot was happening in each 30sec period and waiting for...

Very nice shots. Isn't i the Story Bridge rather than the Storey Bridge though? (in any case you might want to put both words in your keywords)
