Subjects : Kolmaskop is a mining town built by the Germans, who occupied Namibia in 1908 and then abandoned in the mid-50s, was autonomous in all respects. Over time, in addition to the dwellings were built theater still in excellent condition, with exercise equipment because it was also used as a gym, bowling alley, the kitchens, the hospital (there are only rooms), warehouses, shops, the old line ferroviaria.Il "paradise" photo, the houses are left, which gradually have been occupied by the desert sand. In some you enter through the windows and the sand within reach at mid-height of the rooms themselves. The rooms are colored in pastel shades and remain in good condition in some of the fixtures and even the glass in the windows. They are still sinks, bathtubs, all in perfect styles Teutonic as many other areas of Namibia.Ci are also the old warehouses, laboratories and shops (butcher, baker), as well as some buildings with exposed gears and clothes of the time . Visit minimum requires at least 2 hours, but you can photographically, and you have to spend more time.The 'ideal would be to make a visit in the afternoon before the day of arrival, and spend the morning after the session in the middle of fotografica.Essendo desert, you can also see jackals, but the main attraction remains the città.Da not neglect to visit the peninsula of Luderitz going so far as to Diaz Point. They meet flamingos, jackals, springbok and on the rocks in front of Diaz Point also sea lions.

Recommended equipment : The light inside the housing is poor, better to have goals luminosi.Le are recommended wide-angle focal lengths, and to take security in the cavalletto.Essendo then Namibia is a must have telephoto and super telephoto, that certainly will not leave in the car, to be used for shooting in esterni.Attenzione to the sand. Once you've mounted a lens, better not take it off if not in a closed and protected from the wind and sand.

Best months : Throughout the year, keeping in mind that the seasons are opposite in Italia.Luderitz is a very special case forecast, with continuous variations, the cold wind gusts, the fog, the sun and everything in the same giornata.Le unique opportunity Accommodation is in Luderitz (10 km) or to Aus (110 km on the way back).

How to get there : Luderitz is connected to Windhoek (capital of Namibia) with an air service, but those who visit Namibia relies on self drive, then your car (a 4x4) will be your "home" as well as being your own transport. The distance from the capital is about 900 km, which is run in two days with the first step in Kahalari.Altra alternative is to get there from the Fish River Canyon, and milestones will be two (Khalari and Fish River), about 1300 km in total caso.Il this route is all paved, drive on the left, low traffic, long straights, but it never distracted. The last 120 km to reach Luderitz is a show within a show, lunar landscape, the wild horses of the desert, the dunes and the railway line that runs alongside the road, as well as oryx and struzzi.Negli last 20 km before Luderitz, meet the dunes furniture that invade the strada.La road ends at Luderitz and the return is then back up to Aus, where you can decide if addentarsi in the Namib, head south to the Fish River or continue east to the B1 that connects South Africa and Namibia .

Visits : Photographers can get an entry permit that allows access to the public before the opening, turning to this address http://kolmanskuppe.com/ with which to check the exact times of aperturaIl ordinary ticket, can be purchased at ' input (I personally purchased), despite some sites that bring back compulsory buy office of Luderitz. The cost was € 2 (June 2013), that for about 8 euro.All photographers' interior is running a bar which also serves snacks (closed on Sundays), and services are available igenici.Consiglio to arrive early in the morning avoid groups of tourists and go straight for the first houses on the left (photographically the best), where the sets are exciting.

Notes : Go so far as to Luderitz only makes sense if you visit Kolmanskop, and well worth the visit path fatto.Ovviamente the case of Namibia will be only one of the stages. The next step will be up to the Namib Sossusvlei.
