    Photograph by Frans Lanting In 2003, giraffes were reintroduced to NamibRand, a private nature reserve in Namibia that together with conservation-minded regions to the north and south comprises 800 square miles. "Good rains had come to the desert for three years in a row when we were there," says writer Chris Eckstrom, "and the normally bare plains were lush with tall grasses."

Great colours.

When we lived in Kenya, giraffe's crossing the road was a "normal thing". One night when we went to the airport in our tiny, economy car, one crossed the road in front of us. Fortunately, the timing worked in our favor as we surely would've been killed if we had run into the giraffe.

This isn’t a painting. It’s not a Photoshop job or an artist’s rendering. It’s a photograph, taken by National Geographic’s Frans Lanting, that captures the camel thorn trees of Namib-Naukluft Park at the most perfect moment imaginable. Click the image to biggie size for the full effect. That orange backdrop? That’s a dune reflecting Namibia’s rising sun. And while the trees themselves look like etchings of a dream, they’re a very real part of one of the country’s largest national parks.
