Description: This is one of my favorite pictures ever, and a totally awesome example of shadows. The tiny white lines at the feet of the camels are actually the camels, and the black camels you see are actually their shadows. At first glance, this picture looks like some kind of painting you may find on a cave wall because the shadows are completely flat black. I think this picture is an awesome example of shadows that are created based on where your viewpoint is – if you were to view this same scene from the ground, it would look entirely different, and not nearly as cool as it is when viewed from above.
