National Geographic, You Blow My Mind!

Camel Thorn Trees in Namibia photographed (yes photographed — look closely this is not a painting — but a photo) are blowing my mind.  Where do these national geographic people get so much talent?  The orange background is actually a soaring dune, tinted by the morning sun.  The camel thorn trees in Namib-Naukluft Park are in the foreground.

I just had to share this — wow.
