What an amazing sunset it must be to attract so many camels. At 65 and overweight and a bit infirm, I think I'll have to make the trip by car, sad to say.

A desert that's not deserted - how wonderful :-)

Jeevan said...

The sunsets must really be spectacular to draw so many people. I think this is the largest collection of camels I have seen in one photo. Fascinating!

How amazing, riding the camel into the sunset! I would love to try it one day.

Janie said...

I'll bet the sunset is beautiful, and it must be fun to ride the camels. I've often wondered how riding them compares to horseback riding.

I am glad that these beasts of burden get their time of relaxation as well as the humans. These are humped wonders, looking stately as well a elegant given they work as much as they can...

Great shot!
There is one shot from National Geographic with camels and their shadows. At first, you don't really know which ones are the shadows and which ones are the camels.
Here is the link, in case you don't know the shot.

Zuzana said...

Camels are such exotic animals, at least to me.;)) I have never seen a camel in reality, only in a zoo. But then again, I am not sure I have seen one there either.;)
But your pictures are the next best thing.;)

Great capture for C. So many camels wandering or taking a moment to rest. They're really quite beautiful creatures.

Wow, there's masses of camels! It looks a bit like a camel parking lot.

Anna said...

'Camel' is an excellent choice of C-word. I also chose an animal for 'C', but a much smaller one!
Best wishes,
