Riding a camel into the desert sunset, Jordan

Category: Places


Photo and caption by Lily Leung

On the 358th day of my year-long vacation from my corporate job, I found myself on a camel in the Jordan desert. The ride was bumpy, but I was determined to take a photo of my Bedouin guide and the sandy landscape. I held on to the saddle with my left hand, fumbled with the camera using my right, and hoped I wouldn't fall off the camel while aiming the camera. Taken with a Canon XS, photo is uncropped.

Location: Wadi Rum desert camp, Jordan
