Desert Dancer

In November 2014, we visited the Manvar Desert Camp, at milestone 110 on National Highway 114 from Jodhpur to Jaisalmer in the Indian state of Rajasthan. At night by campfire light, we were treated to a performance by traditional dancers and musicians. The young woman in red in the photo is twirling in front of three seated musicians in white costumes.

    1. This is a long exposure with some ambient light. There was an arc of seats in front of the dancer with tourists taking flash photos. The streaks are caused by the ambient light and the three more distinct images of the dancer are the result of flashes from other people’s cameras.
