Arabian Light

Photograph by Rogel Tura, National Geographic Your Shot

In the United Arab Emirates, Your Shot member Rogel Tura captured this iconic silhouette while traveling in the desert at sunset. Tura was heading to his camp when he came upon the man and his camels at the top of the dunes.

For those of us who grew up in the Arabian Peninsula this is not exotic but it is beautiful in every way. The bedou, his camels, the sun and the sand.
