GRAZING? I took this photo when I was with my friends heading towards Ras Al Khaima (RAK) other Emirate. I believe I took this shot somewhere in Umm Al Qwain (another Emirate). There was a slight sandstorm, but the weather temperature is pleasant.

Grazing in the desert, come on you must be joking :))
Hope you like it guys. Keep well and thank you.

WOW!! What an amazing composition!!! Fantastic sharpness

Very well done and wonderfull desert, wonderful sand color

Lovely image, Jeff!
I like the juxtaposition and framing of the subjects. Good timing and capture. Very well seen, indeed.
Freddie :)

PS: There is no grass to graze. It's more appropriate to call it Exodus, or something like that :)

great trio! nice ambiance. very authentic. tfs

Hi Jeffrey

There's something special when using three's in a frame. The "three" camels create strong interest and they're positioned to provide a good sense of depth. Also they seem to portray something of the dry, vast space of the dessert.

Sir Jeff ang ganda nito. well placed talaga ang subjects sa wide expanse ng desert.

NIce compo! good catch on the subjects! i like the camel on the right, mukhang tumigil at nagpose.lol! tfs


Super shot here Jeffrey! My goodness what DO camels eat?? There is nothing there to eat! Super shot, love how the depth of the shot is shown by the camels!
Have a great weekend!

Hey Jeff. This shot is just great. It is impressive to see that kind of scenery. We are not used to this in Canada. Congratulations. TFS. Cheers. Dany :-)

So - are these wild camels? Or out to 'pasture' (as if!)

Amazing landscape and an excellent capture, very well composed with good metering and good depth of field, the drifting sand helps add a sense of distance here too.

Good work my friend

nice. great composition jeff!


Hi Jeff,

Real nice... the desert looks so nice... although I doubt it is, it's probably ridiculous with it's temperatures. I like the variations in colour density... really nice stuff. TFS.


I love this composition and the sense of depth. A favourite!

Hi Jeffrey,
Gorgeous view, as Paul already a picture with great depth which makes it very attractive. The three camels are excellent positioned in thsi image, which makes a a nfine composition. The blurred horizon makes it also quite intrigue. Well done and TFS!

a stunning 'classic', very well executed, love it, great c9oomp and colours give us the correct mood, thanx Jeff, M, (*_*)

Nice composition to draw viewer further into your photo!

Camels is definitely not something I see everyday here, they are somewhere in Australia.
