SMS must be right, the picture is taken directly overhead (you can actually see the camels' backs) with the sun feom the side casting the shadows.

Speaking of amazing nature, i downloaded an uncompressed version of the new BBC documentary Planet Earth (episode one Pole to Pole)

Simply stunning footage, they used a special camera on a helicopter that can zoom in from over 1km away, which meant the animals were not disturbed. They also had some amazing footage of a great white jumping out of the water to catch a seal.

I have never said "wow" so many times watching tv before.

I guess unless you are in the uk or can donwload tv you have no idea what I am talking about - but if you ever see the DVD in the shops in the future you should really get it - jaw dropping stuff

www.uknova.com - does english tv via the bit torrent network, although it is free they only have a set number of members & you basically have to be lucky enough to go to the site when there is membership available, as accounts that have been unactive for a certain period get deleted.

It is my life line of english tv here in Singapore, I love it
