We’ve seen a lot of natural beauty on this trip, but this is the most beautiful sight of all.
Not something you see every day — camel tracks in the sand.
As the tide slowly recedes on this broad, flat beach, it leaves designs in the sand that look like boab trees. Kind of artsy, huh?
Broome’s Cable Beach fills with hundreds of cars and trucks and utes every afternoon before sundown. The beach is so broad and so flat that it still looks completely deserted. But the moment the sun disappears behind the horizon, it looks like rush hour in Los Angeles as they line up to leave.
It just feels good to be back in Broome.
Holy crap. This may be the best photo we’ve ever taken. The sun, the moon, and camels on Cable Beach.
We can’t blame the moon for smiling. Life is good here at Cable Beach.

Your sunset camel picture looks like something from out of a magazine!
Complete luck. No skill whatsoever involved.

I didn’t know they even had camels in Australia! I learn something new every day! These are really great shots!
I wrote about this once before, but it’s worth repeating. Believe it or not, Australia is now the only country in the world with wild camels. They were imported to haul cargo across the dry, dusty outback in the days before roads and railroads were built across the country. When those roads and railroads were finally completed, the camels were turned loose to fend for themselves. They estimate that there may be more than a million of them roaming the outback. Who’d a thunk?
Great photos! The camels at sunset is worthy of, as the Aussies say “Nat Geo.”
High praise coming from a photographer whose work graces a wall in our house. And if I’m not mistaken, he may have taken the photo that sits atop JimandJamie.com, too. Getting a good shot of Jamie is pretty easy, but taking a good photo of me requires remarkable skill.
Awesome pictures Jim! Although I will never say anything about the pics you take with Jamie in them. Y’all are married and I never covet another mans wife in public. (snicker)
Get in line, buddy.

Beautiful photographs – worthy of being in a travel journal. When are you going to have it published Jim?
