Beautiful photos indeed. What I particularly like that they are so balanced and not too contrasty.

Beautiful photos Mike.
My favourites are #4 and #7.
The former has a certain Dali-esque feel.
The latter is eye candy. Excellent texture from the dunes and added interest from the human element.
The preceding one with the dromedaries could also have been great but to me it feels like you missed the timing a bit. I would have preferred to see them with high dunes in the background and very little, if any sky at the top.

Many thanks for your comments, Eric, Anirban and Simato.

Yes, the timing could have been better. I did see them passing, but the light was quite flat at the time and I let it go. The sun subsequently emerged from behind a cloud and the colours reappeared, but they were already starting down the dune. I did not mind too much, though, as it conveys a sense of "checking out" for the evening.
