Follow the Leader

Sorry I am a bit limited on 365 at the moment, it has been a busy week.

I took this photo at Birubi Beach on Saturday when I caught up with Nicole and Rob.

A perfect day for a camel ride.
Wonderful capture FAV

Love it.

I love yourr camel pictures. This always looks so exotic seeing them along the beach like this, like a scene from Lawrence of Arabia!
April 24th, 2017  
Love it -- just like a mirage !!
April 24th, 2017  
Fabulous image

Interesting that the riders are wearing helmets. I didn't wear one when I rode one
April 24th, 2017  
Lovely capture in nice detail and colour, like your composition Babs, surprised white crash hats are worn by all on a beach location, elf & safety again possibly more likely to break your neck or do they have to wear neck braces too:)

Great shot of the camels and their reflections.
April 24th, 2017  
Just wonderful. The camel reflections, the line of camels, love this.
April 24th, 2017  
Lovely shot, Babs.
April 24th, 2017  
nice capture Babs!
April 24th, 2017  
Great capture, composition
April 24th, 2017  
I still struggle to believe that camel rides happen on NSW beaches!!
April 24th, 2017  
My first thought was cable beach... It's nice to see that camels are not just in Broome.
April 24th, 2017  
what a lovely scene. I love riding camels. They are so comfortable apart from when they get up and down

I wonder if the camels enjoy the walk through the water. Good capture Gabs.
April 24th, 2017  
Excellent capture.
April 24th, 2017  
Very cool!
April 24th, 2017  
And the perfect place to take this picture with the line of all those walking legs in the water.
April 24th, 2017  
I always smile when I see them
April 24th, 2017  
Great composition.
April 24th, 2017  
What a wonderful sight, though not one I'd necessarily expect to see in Australia. Would certainly have grabbed my camera if I'd seen those coming along!
April 24th, 2017  
Wonderful capture, you would think you are in Africa. Fav
April 24th, 2017  
Love the train, they are busy, a lovely capture
April 24th, 2017  
Nice shot.... I am curious to know Babs.. what do they charge and for how long is the ride?
April 24th, 2017  
What an amazing sight Babs, I never knew you had camels like this. Love the silhouettes against the sea.
April 24th, 2017  
A wonderful capture. Fav!! 😀
April 24th, 2017  
Fabulous capture! This is something I definitely want to do when I visit Australia! :-)
April 24th, 2017  
I just love this Babs! Great reflection of the camels' feet in the water! Fav
April 24th, 2017  
It looks so exotic to see camels. Great reflections too Bab.

Great image
April 24th, 2017  
So cool!
April 24th, 2017  
They do camel rides in Australia? Catch the camels from the interior and tame them?
April 24th, 2017  
@casablanca They look even more exotic when they are walking over the dunes too.
April 24th, 2017  
@yorkshirekiwi @pcoulson I think the helmets are quite a new thing. As Peter said 'elf and safety'. Not so sure the helmets would do you much good though because they are a bit bent and battered. I think it is just so that you can't sue if you fall off.

@gigiflower In 2013 I think there were about 750,000 feral camels in Australia, so these are a few of the ones who have been rounded up.
April 24th, 2017  
@deborah63 Quite a lot of camel rides along the east coast I believe.
April 24th, 2017  
@cruiser I enjoy a camel ride too, but getting of is a bit hair raising.
April 24th, 2017  
@gamelee They don't seem to mind the water.
April 24th, 2017  
@dolphin today we have around 750,000 feral camels in Australia. They were introduced in the 1800s to be used for transport and heavy duty work when they were building the railways in the outback.
April 24th, 2017  
@helenhall I am sure they feel at home. Walking over the dunes must make them think of the desert.
April 24th, 2017  
@stephanies I had to look this one up Stephanie. They run camel rides at the weekends and school holidays and the cost is $30 for an adult and $25 for a child. The ride is about 20 minutes long. Only children over 10 years old allowed though. They also do an hour long sunset ride over the dunes and along the beach occasionally too and the cost of that is $80 adult and $50 child.

@happypat There are lots of camel rides in Australia. The camels were introduced in the 1800s to be used as transport and heavy duty work when they were building the railways in the outback. There are now about 750,000 feral camels roaming the outback in Australia.
April 24th, 2017  
That looks like so much fun! fav
April 25th, 2017  
Great shot Babs, love all the crash helmets. How typically Australian.
April 25th, 2017  
Love this with the reflection of the long line of legs!
April 25th, 2017  
@onewing wow!
April 25th, 2017  
such an unusual sight for me ... gorgeous ...fav
April 25th, 2017  
I have a very similar photo that I am going to post. I am just downloading my photos now. I filled my memory card over the weekend. Lots of photos to process now.
April 25th, 2017  
A uniquely beautiful capture. :)
April 25th, 2017  
Thanks Babs for checking that out for me, I was really curious about it.
April 25th, 2017  
Great convoy of camels :)
April 25th, 2017
