Dawn Prayer, Mount Sinai

This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Magazine Features

At dawn on Mount Sinai, camels rest and Said Spayel prays. Tourism on the peak has been a boon to Bedouin like Spayel: He charges about $15 a person for camelback rides to the summit. Thousands of other Bedouin live in the desert, where opportunities to earn cash are few.
