The returning wise men?

I suppose they could be.  There are certainly three of them  –  and they’re empty handed, so possibly they’ve delivered their gifts.  And they’re setting off into the desert as if they’re from afar.

But just one moment.  I’m not sure they’re all men, and their clothes look remarkably modern.  You’d think they would at least each have a camel or a donkey and, perhaps, would be on speaking terms!  It seems there is also a cameraman with them.  Now that’s a surprise!

The truth is the photo was taken about four years ago on the dunes of Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands.  The positioning of the walkers was fortuitous and was not contrived.

  1. It certainly was fortuitous – but you were smart enough to take action, too.

  2. You have no idea how long I had been standing there waiting for a suitable opportunity!!

  3. Thanks Helen. If patience is a virtue I would be St Louis!!!.

  4. Sometimes waiting a while is all it takes to turn a nice shot into a great one. ‘Nice’ is a bit of a boring word but used with intent!
