Desert Fog

Morning fog skims enormous sand dunes in Namibia's Naukluft National Park. Your Shot photographer Lola Biuckians captured this image from a helicopter. "An unusual occurrence in the desert, she says, "our pilot said he has not seen anything like this in his almost twenty years of flying this morning run." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram. Follow us on Instagram at @natgeoyourshot or visit us at for the latest submissions and news about the community.
