“Riding the famous camels along Cable Beach is a unique event that is experienced by so many and remains embedded as a wonderful holiday highlight.
There are multiple teams of camels providing rides and the most popular of all are the sunset tours along the pristine beach. The train of camel riders traverse the sand northwards past a multitude of 4WDS parked on the beach, while locals sipping on coldies in deck chairs watch on.
As the sun was setting over the Indian Ocean I tried to capture the feeling but also isolate the riders from other vehicles – so found a vacant area of beach between deck chairs and waited for the camels to walk past on the edge of water, being silhouetted by the setting sun. This was taken with a Nikon D300 at 6.57pm on the 10 Sept 2011. Shutter speed 1/4000s; f5.6; ISO 200; and focal length18mm.”
