New on 500px : Old man and his camel by xperimenter by xperimenter

The old man’s name is Sidi and the camel’s name I am not sure about, since I don’t speak Arabic and Sidi didn’t speak other languages. In February 2014 I was travelling in some remote parts of Mauritanian Sahara and came across these two guys 🙂 Sidi was a nomad living there and agreed to take me to the desert for two days to see giant singing dunes. What an epic journey it was! Walking incredible landscapes for many miles without seeing a soul, watching an incredible sunset, sleeping under the starriest sky in the world. In this picture Sidi is carrying a stick he found along the way for our bonfire. Sand dunes there were so huge that the camel was leaning back and forth sliding down the slopes all the time. After a short ride on the camel’s back I realized that it would be much better for both camel and myself if I just walk the rest of the way. But I was not disappointed as it allowed me to take this shot, as well as many other pictures of Sahara.

When arriving Dune 45 the main goal is to get to the top, but there is nothing harder then climbing on a sand mountain before sunrise with your full gear array, proceeding 2 steps ahead and 1 step back when sinking because the weight i added on me. I just had to stop and take a shot from this very place you see here. I think it was worth it…

New on 500px : Sunset Over Sahara And Five Camels by KChae by KChae

Harsh conditions of Sahara is a perfect playground for these strong camels, and no model would look as beautiful on it as the camels themselves.
