#FriFotos: Sand, Sand, Everywhere

Sorry, there’s no water here. For this week’s #FriFotos* theme (SAND), we chose this photo of a Berber guide leading a camel through the Merzouga Desert — Morocco’s share of the Sahara, the largest (hot) desert in the world. Tomas Kouba, from Cesky Krumlov, CZ, snapped this vibrant pic on an unforgettable trip to Erg Chebbi — where the dunes can reach as high as 500 feet — and submitted it to our My Shot community photo gallery.

Want to see one of your photos featured on our website or Intelligent Travel blog? Make it happen by uploading your favorite travel pics (don’t forget to add a caption!) to ngm.com/yourshot. Tag all your submissions #travelshot – then look for your photos in one of our My Shot galleries or on our blog.

* What’s #FriFotos, you ask? It’s a weekly themed Twitter chat founded by @EpsteinTravels where travelers share their favorite pics. Search #FriFotos on Twitter to see the latest submissions or tweet one of your own!
