Namib Dessert ESA Satellite

Fire & Ice… The red hue comes from the iron oxide which is plentiful in this area of the Namib dessert of Namibia. BUT, the colors are not quite realistic. This is one of the European Space Agency satellite photos that have been recolored as part of an art/science collaborative exhibition called Spaceship Earth.

Here the location via Google maps if you are curious: link.

And here a few more of my favorite images from taken from ESA satellite:
