Just before sunset we arrived in Merzouga, where our cameltrip started, into the Erg Chebbi-dessert. After half an hour I jumped of my camel, to make better photos. The scenery was absolutely amazing, with the changing colours of the sand and the silhouet of the caravans!

Hola Rik ........
Excellent simple and beautiful postcard with the silhouette of the caravan cut away on an indefinite sky of the desert.

Beautiful shot with excellent metering and framing, emphasizing the silhouette of the caravan. It appears that the shutter speed allowed for some movement to be preserved in the feet of the camels, leading to a pleasant dynamic effect. You should have definitely posted in higher resolution, allowing for a better appreciation of your image.

This is a shot I wish I'd had a chance to take...fabulous! The lighting here would have given many a lot of trouble. You nailed! The silhouettes against the golden sky create a timeless image.

I like the framing of the camel shadows against a vanishing sunset. We can feel that the camels are walking!
Thank you for sharing
