Captured in Merzouga, Morocco, amidst the vast expanse of the Sahara desert, "Sands of Dawn" offers a mesmerizing scene. The photograph depicts a camel herder leading a procession of four camels across the sands, precisely at sunrise. The figures are cast in striking silhouette against the backdrop of the ascending sun, which radiates like a glowing circle. The herder stands as the focal point of this ethereal glow, while the sky paints itself in a mesmerizing palette of yellow hues. This image, captured with a Sony 100-400mm lens, encapsulates the magic of a desert sunrise, where figures and nature dance in harmony with the unfolding day. Photo © copyright by Rich Voninski.
