Ladies and Gentlemen, that was a photo. Yup, not a painting, a photo taken Frans Lanting during his National Geographic Assignment to Africa.

Frans Lanting revealed in an interview that it was with planning, smart use of equipment, experience and a bit of luck that such a photo can be produced.

Here's how it looks like from another view.
