A Camel Driver at the Golden Hour

This is our entry in Dutch goes the Photo!’s Tuesday Photo Challenge – Hour.

We were at Manvar Camp (essentially a dude ranch) in Rajasthan, India, on an evening camel ride. After rocking back and forth and doing our best not to fall off, we stopped to rest and wait for the sunset. We saw our guide in an unguarded moment and managed to capture this image. It is one of our favorite images from that ride.

We saw this girl in Kanodiya Purohit, Rajasthan, India while traveling to the nearby Manvar Camp (www.manvar.com). She was calmly carrying a heavy load on her head as we — and an English couple — were clinging for dear life to a wildly careening jeep which only occasionally used the rutted dirt roads and more often roared at full throttle across open fields and sand dunes toward the camp.
