Incredible Nat Geo photograph

What you’re seeing above is not a painting – a fact my feeble mind can barely comprehend. It’s actually a photograph taken in Namibia by Frans Lanting for National Geographic:

Tinted orange by the morning sun, a soaring dune is the backdrop for the hulks of camel thorn trees in Namib-Naukluft Park.
