A few years ago, I decided (smartly or maybe not so smartly) to take an overland trip in Africa by myself for five weeks. One of the stops was at Namibia's Petrified Forest which is where this picture was taken. As you can see, it isn't exactly a traditional forest, but what is amazing is that these trees washed up here in a flood estimated to have occurred over 280 million years ago - that's before the dinosaurs roamed the Earth!
What a stunning shot! The colours are amazing, and you've got to love a picture with a story. Diana writes her own blog (www.justwanderlustblog.com) and, like me, loves to find off the beaten track places.
