Wave patterns off Namibian coast - February 18th, 2009

The northern part of the coastline of Namibia, before the start of the arid terrain of the Namib Desert, is visible here.

This area is known as Kunene (also Kaokoland), one of the thirteen regions of Namibia and home to the Himba ethnic group.

Compared to the rest of Namibia, it is relatively underdeveloped. This may be due to the mountainous inaccessible geography and the dryness that significantly hinders agriculture.

Offshore in the full image, some interesting wave patterns can be observed in the Atlantic Ocean.
