Sunset in the Desert

On our trip to Morocco we spent a night camel trekking in the dunes of Erg Chebbi to spend a night in a nomad desert camp. Spending 2 hours on a camel either way left me with legs bent in a U-shape for several hours, and a bruised bum for several days (sitting on the toilet was particularly painful), but it was worth it for being able to watch the sunrise and sunset over these amazing dunes!

 

I'm still learning with HDR.

    Sarah, love this photo - would that I could share a little of the pain you experienced to get here as payment for the priviledge of viewing this marvelous desertscape with sun set. But since you paid the price and graciously let the world experience some measure of the wonder and joy you found - I will simply say thank you - and well, keep it up!
