Camel in the desert, Wadi Rum, Jordan.

A camel stands in the spectacular landscape of Wadi Rum, Jordan.     Also known as the Valley of the Moon,  Wadi Rum is a spectacular region in southern Jordan where a sandy valley lies between granite and sandstone rock formations.    I was fortunate enough to visit there in April,  2007,  and got this photograph late in the afternoon by climbing to the top of a sand dune nearby to a tented camp where we were staying that night.   The scene itself was great but made even better when a camel thoughtfully positioned itself one third of the way into my frame aiding the composition of the image!    :-)
