Camel in a Pivot irrigation field – Qarryat Al Ulya

Camels are, as you would imagine, quite a common sight in the deserts of Saudi Arabia and they come in all sorts of different colours. I have taken numerous photos of them over the years against their desert backgrounds but last month I found a group feeding on a stubble field adjacent to a large pivot irrigation field. This gave me the chance to take a photo of a white camel against a green rather than whitish background and the result came out reasonable well, I think. No matter how many times I see camels I am always happy to see more. They are really beautiful creatures from a distance, although they can be a bit temperamental if you get too close to them.
