Sahara's Edge

A camel caravan journeys across the dunes of Morocco's Erg Chebbi desert on the edge of the Sahara. Before capturing this scene, photographer Rafal Ziejewski had trekked two hours into the desert by camel and spent the night at a Berber camp. "On the way back I wanted to take some interesting photos of this amazing place," writes Ziejewski, a member of our Your Shot community. "[So] instead of taking a camel, I decided to walk. Getting off the beaten track gave me a lot of opportunities for great shots."

Ziejewski's picture recently appeared in Your Shot's Daily Dozen.
