Young camels get used to going around the racetrack
Although there is still a chill in the air, the early morning sun begins to heat up the sand dunes as the camels trot past, their padded feet scarcely making a sound on the desert floor. Stately seniors, with trainers perched on their backs, lead one or two youngsters by ropes tied around their necks. They are here at the Dubai Camel Racetrack, where photographer Khalid Aziz came to capture these stunning photographs, taken over three visits in February 2012.
