The image is from Namib-Naukluft National Park which is part of the Namib Desert (considered the world’s oldest desert according to Wikipedia). I found a similar image on National Geographic which gives you a sense of the scale of the dunes and camel thorn trees. The image below was shot by Frans Lanting.
*Update February 21st 2017 – We are continuing to update this list, removing Tumblrs that are no longer updated very frequently, and adding more as they are submitted. Please read the text below before submitting your Tumblr for consideration! Thank you all for the help, this has become an amazing resource – let’s keep it going!
We’re compiling an extensive list of all the art and photography Tumblrs worth following and would love your help to make this the ultimate list! Please leave a comment below with your suggestions and we’ll update this list with the best suggestions.
1) Your Tumblr must be a survey of work by different people. We are not including individual artists’ portfolio sites.
2) You give credit to the creators, and even better you provide a link to the source of the work.
3) Your Tumblr is updated weekly at the very least. If your Tumblr has been removed because it was inactive, let us know if it’s alive again.

“Girl with Ice Cream Cone” remake by Stephanie Gonot
“Grande Odalisque” remake by Craig White
We’re putting together a big gallery of all of our favourite submissions to our Remake project. If you missed it, we asked our readers to recreate a well known work of art as a photo, using household objects rather than Photoshop. VIEW THE FULL GALLERY HERE.
We’re been posting lots of animation over on Booooooom TV lately, and hopefully a healthy mix of things you haven’t seen before. Here’s a few recommendations:
It’s a penguin on a trampoline what more do you want! I’m trying to figure out what I find so satisfying about this silly animation by Bashir Sultani. I think it’s the ending, or maybe it’s just my undying love for Pingu. You can watch the full clip below. Bashir also makes drawings using salt (which you can see below) but I’d like to request more penguin animations.
We’re launching a little club for those of you who enjoy photography, called the Magic Hour Photo Club! We have lots of fun things planned and we’ve made some hats to celebrate! Some will be for sale, and some will be awarded to people just for taking part in various photo challenges.
We aren’t officially starting the challenges quite yet but we have a mini-challenge here, and the first person to complete it gets sent a hat, a roll of film, and a sticker pack.
Below are cropped sections of 9 photos from 9 different photography posts on our site (see full size here). The first person to send an email to xxxxxxxxxxx with links to the 9 photography posts that contain these images gets all the goods. If you find all 9 but aren’t the first one to do it, we’ll still send you some little goodies (as supplies last). You’ll find the images on photography posts between today and January 1st 2016.
***This challenge is now over!***
Congratulations to Edmond Ng for finding all the images the fastest! You’re the first person to get one these hats! Stay tuned there will be more challenges on the way!
Starting tomorrow we’ll update this post with larger and larger crops of each photo as the hunt goes on. Good luck and stay tuned for the official launch of Magic Hour Photo Club!
Update 4pm: Here’s a better look at all 9 images below!
Also found a box of Kodak Portra film that was kept on ice (expired now) but will definitely be sending out rolls of that and other film along with sticker packs to people who find them all!
Update: Feb 9th – these might be the final hints!
