Sam's Sand Dunes

On the day this was taken India had recorded its new all-time record temperature of 51 degrees Celsius. Not too far away in the heart of the desert, I was riding on a camel through the sand dunes in Sam in the heart of the Thar Desert taking in similar unbearable temperatures. I won't ever forget the heat.
