Different kind of date

By lucinka
Morocco >> South >> Er Rachidia >> The Dunes of Merzouga

I was going through my older photographs and this shot caught my eye. It was taken early in the morning and it gives this photo very soft colors and tones. What I like about this picture is that those camels look like on camel date in front of those beautiful layers of colors on dunes.

MagicalI love the layers and the golden light.Foreground intrest of camel and owner also add to it.(They could make a image on their own.

Without the camels, this looks like a beautiful Photoshop image. The camels bring it back to life. I love the rich colors. Yvonne

Super image, I think the top half would make a good crop on it's own. Geoff

I love this image.The camels are getting a little bit lost and I might be inclined to crop them as those dunes are gorgeous with some stunning light,however i'm sure you have thought of this and i'll go along with it as it is.

Really beautiful use of the layers. I agree with some of the above it might work with or without the camels. Also I think the contrast is a little harsh, but hey, that's me. A beautiful shot
