Both the previous two shots that I posted, this one, and the next one, were taken during my landscape workshop at the recent Gulf Photo Plus Fotoweekend. One of the the things that I asked the students to do was to bring along some props. Some brought sunglasses, or flip-flops, or other items that you might relate to being in a desert, but one student brought a plastic dinosaur and a miniature Spider Man. Initially, I was a bit sceptical - there isn't much of a link between the desert and a cartoon super hero - but after seeing the shots I think it was a pretty good idea :)

Incidentally, if you've wondering why Spider Man is buried quite so far into the sand, take a look at this shot of one of my students:

As you can see, it was rather windy :)
