Awesomest Image du Jour C

Photograph or Painting?


Photograph, my friends...one incredible photograph.

Taken in a Namibian park by Frans Lanting for National Geographic, the stunning effect was made possible by a brief moment when the morning sun was illuminating sand dunes beyond while the desert floor was still in shadow.  See this image in its larger context -- as well as some other photos and the accompanying article -- here.
