These incredible photos of bare, dark trees provide the perfect contrast against an orange backdrop and look like something from a Dali painting - or even one of Muse's album covers. And the orange backdrop is not a sunlit sky but one of the highest sand dunes in the world, which measures up to 400m tall.
Photographer Mark Brodkin had only a few minutes to capture the surreal-like images as the low light from the sun hit the base of the enormous sand dune. The 47-year-old was visiting Deadvlei, a white clay pan located within the sand dunes of Sossusvlei, in the Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia, Africa, where these photos were taken.
