This is probably one of the most surreal structures I've seen. I pass it often on my trips between north and south Namibia.
It stands near a farmhouse on the Aus - Helmeringhausen road. In this image you can just make it out on the bend in the road ... on the edge of a 40km stretch of desolate desert flatness.The whole setting is so weird, it could be from a Mad Max movie.
It's fairly old and looks like it supports two water tanks.
The wires on top? Well, that looks like an antennae of sorts but for what purpose?
I like to imagine that the farm owner is a UFO freak hoping to make contact with ETs - I've often been tempted to stop and ask what it is but the truth would probably ruin my fantasy - there's probably a simple explanation ... any bright ideas?
