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

Featured as the May 17, 2011 ‘Photo of the Day’ at Photography.NationalGeographic.com, this image has caused quite a stir –frankly, because it looks altered or enhanced. Well, it’s not. It’s an amazing photograph that was included in their June 2011 feature story “Africa’s Super Park.”

Check it out… pretty amazing.
