    Despite the painterly color and uncanny composition, the National Geographic Photo of the Day is, indeed, a photograph. Photographer Franz Lanting captured this scene in Namib-Naukluft National Park, Namibia. The bright orange background is a large sand dune, illuminated by the morning light. Camel thorn trees line the foreground, in the shadow of another dune. via @Bauldoff
