A Bedouin Rests in the Dunes at Sunset

While in Morocco earlier this year, I visited the Sahara Desert immediately outside of Merzouga, approximately 30 miles from the Algerian border. We rode camels at sunset. Rather than watch the sun, my eyes kept returning to our Bedouin guides who spread out on different dunes in solace, their colored robes contrasting brilliantly against the sand.
