Photographer's Note

Sunset camel rides are part of the beach culture in Broome,this is not an optical illusion nor tricky digital processing, but two groups of camels passing each other. The photographer is mounted on the camel in the centre of the photo, as we approached the blue garbed camels ( we were on the red ones ), I could see the potential of this POV. The camel ride was fantastic, after some apprehension as it rose from the ground and acustomising myself to the rhythm however it is not condusive to taking photos. When you ride a camel it walks slowly, but the passenger is tossed around in a series of gentle lurches, so you have to time a photo to coincide with the end of a lurch - fortunately I had had several disastrous attempts and worked out the process before this opportunity presented itself.
