From google on 'george steinmetz' yielded following link-info:

Photographs by George Steinmetz

Taken in February 2004 on assignment for National Geographic, this photograph shows a unique aerial perspective of The Empty Quarter, the world’s largest sand desert.

George Steinmetz took the picture looking straight down while piloting his motorized paraglider near Wadi Mitan, a remote part of Oman close to where Saudi Arabia, Oman, and Yemen meet.

Since it first appeared in National Geographic, it has been included in numerous additional publications and exhibitions.

BTW, you should have erased 'george steinmetz'

hmmm...looks like someone went to google eh....but at first sight it does look like some painting..but hasnt it been enhanced a little more...the detailing of the camel's shadow looks very clear for a shot like that.

I did mistake the shadow for the camel. And kept thinking that the part of the pic below the outline of the camel are the shadows. But that didnt add up since what I thought were the shadows, are light colored, odd shaped.

Read the messages, and it took a bit to sink in that what I thought was the animal was actually the shadow.

alrite...some of u have been able to make out[with the help of google though].The black ones are the shadows,white ones the real camels.

@suryam:-i thought abt erasing all the text but then my faith/trust in fellow t-bhpian's honesty prevented me doing so...

But the award for the best answer goes to......ofcourse B&T
