Camel Thorn Trees in Namibia

Before we start I’d like to invite you to warmly welcome Jill Harness, our new writer to join this blog. Jill has already introduced herself in her first post, but I felt it would be proper if I did another introduction myself. Jill’s journalistic background and professional writing experience (along with her passion for art) are just the right qualities this blog needed. She’ll be helping me by adding more professionally written content, and bringing some fresh ideas to this site. I feel enthusiastic, as I believe we started making progress in right direction. Specially after my decision to professionalize Mighty Optical Illusions properties.

Illusion wise, as the Dies Irae noticed: “…anyone who sees this photograph (taken by Frans Lanting of National Geographic) thinks its photoshopped.” In reality, the tinted orange background is produced by a soaring dune shined by the morning sun – a backdrop for the hulks of camel thorn trees in Namib-Naukluft Park!

    1. no its real. when it says ‘a backdrop’ it means that the sand dune is like a backdrop, not an actual backdrop painting. read peoples!

    1. No, it’s a real picture that looks like it was painted or drawn. No face. So cool!

  1. i didn’t even think the trees were real, never mind the background! Oh, and welcome Jill!

  2. I am in awe of your talented eye and applications, Jill! I have had an interest in photography all my life and am going to venture into digital applications in just a few days (a true novice). You are an inspiration and I will be looking to find more of your heart and soul creations in the near future.

  3. why is it called an illusion when it’s a photo of nothing that messes up your head???…oh right! the orange stuff makes you think it’s not a real pic.
