Photographer's Note

I tried a low shooting angle here. The sunrise was a non event as the bg sand dunes are just too high and the sun has well & truly risen once it clears the top of the dunes. I tried walking partway up the closer dunes but they just stretch almost endlessly to Algeria. You really need a hot air balloon to get the first sunrays and a colored orange sky at dawn. So I tried concentrating on the silhouettes and shapes of the camels instead using them as a filter against the strong backlight. I've categorised this as transportation as camels are often called the ships of the desert.
