Its a preference in  this line of work to work under the moon light to escape the impending heat from the sun.

Old Bedouin woman spinning goat wool during the midday heat

While hiking in the desert I met this old and lonely Bedouin woman. Two ideas came to my mind: i) most of her life having been spent around wool threads, and ii) her subsistence still pending from one of them. I think this shot captures both thoughts.
