16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Camel Racers

We were driving out to the desert when I spotted the camels approaching us. We turned off the highway to get a better look. These men were the camel jockeys and just finished exercising the camels. It was an amazing sight to see. The camels were built like greyhounds. Fascinating to see this part of Arabian culture and heritage.
