[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
People in Cholistan desert see no colors in landscape. Their only joy comes from the many color combinations that they wear. They decorate camels with some of those colors. I took this shot on a sunny morning, when sudden wind span blew sand across the Yazman desert and created an aura of mystery around this group.

great light and colors, excellent capture of the athmosphere, perfect composition, a lot of dust : dangerous for the camera ! well done

I really like this one. It's very realistic and the dust makes all the difference. Well done.

This is a great shot! I love how you composed the shot with the camels and its riders walking towards the camera while the boys are walking away. Great capture of the sand flying around. Well done!

Hi Umair,
Stunning picture, great colours unless the sand dust swirling around these people. Excellent chosen POV A bit low so looking up as from a childs perspective.
