Camel Thorn Trees, Namibia Explanation

That is a picture of Camel Thorn trees in a Namibian dessert in Africa. Yes, it is a real picture. It is not a paining nor is it Photoshopped. As proof, it was posted as Photo of the Day by National Geographic.

What you see on the background are not the orange leaves of the trees, they are sand dunes with small white stones. Also, try zooming in the picture and the background looks more or less like the surface of mars.

It makes a good picture. It's a tough shot, the picture was taken at the exact time such that the stones don't cast shadows. The ground is shaded by the sand dune, giving it a blue hue.

If you still don't believe me, here's a shot of the same dessert in another angle.
