Photo of the Day: Egypt Camel and Pyramid

Camel and Pyramids

Six weeks in and Dream Trip 2009 is going strong! For inspiration for your own entry (and a chance to win a $25,000 vacation to wherever you choose), here's a submission that caught our eye:

President Obama arrives in Cairo today, a state visit that has us dipping into the Dream Trip Gallery for iconic images of Egypt. We're thinking sand, we're thinking Pyramids, we're thinking camels.

Dream Trip entrant darko hits all the requisite notes with the entry "Sunrise in Giza," a shot so perfect we could image it emblazoning a T-shirt the president might pick up to commemorate his visit.

"To see the Pyramids before the packed tour coaches arrived, we got up before sunrise and rode out into the desert on a couple of rented camels," writes darko."Seeing them bathed in the light of the desert dawn helps us travel back in time and stand in awe of the human conviction which drove our ancient ancestors to build these immense headstones."

Share your travel photos and memories in our 2009 Dream Trip Contest. You could be just a few clicks away from a $25,000 trip to anywhere you choose.
