These stunning images capture the moment a herd of camels enjoyed a gentle stroll along the beach during a perfect sunny day.
Framed against a clear blue sky, the bactrian camels were giving rides to tourists in Anna Bay, New South Wales, Australia.
The pictures taken by 37-year-old amateur photographer Bhaumik Bumia show the mammals walking in line along the shoreline while others show beaming tourists enjoying the ride.
The accountant from Canberra, Australia, who has been taking pictures for around two years, took the images one afternoon earlier this month.
Bhaumik said: “We were on the beach to enjoy ourselves and there was a company offering rides so I decided to take some pictures.”
