Safaga range a few kilometres before the road drops down to the sandy coastline of the Red Sea. Then a hard turn left to reach Hurgada airport. There is a coppery green tint to the red rocky mountains.

can't believe nobody has given you 2pts on this one yet, let me be the first.
love this one because its so different from the usual Egypt scene.
looks like you could be driving through some US State National Park or something.
cool post all around

Well taken with the perspective of the curve of the road, strange and beautifl landscape with these rocks on each side of the road, tfs.

What a beautiful but unfriendly landscape. I can imagine to be there in the hot day. Impressive view. Good inclusion of this lone car. Excellent composition with great depth and sharpness.

The rocks are magnificent and this is generally a kind of scenery where I love to travel. I like the look of the road disappearing behind a rock, which usually stimulates my imagination. Unfortunately Egypt has become a country where you never quite know what will happen behind the bend. I love the colours and the light of this photo.

Not the sort of scene one expects in Egypt, an almost deserted road through a craggy mountain pass. Very well captured with excellent light, colours and clarity. The curving road is an invitation to step in and find out what lies behind the bend.

Lep pogled na put koji nas vodi tamo daleko u nepoznato ...
Dobar rad i kompozicija, dobar kontrast i perspektiva, lepe boje,
Lepo pokazano, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa vozilom na putu.
Lep put i priroda.
Sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
Beautiful view of the path that leads us far away into the unknown ...
Good work and composition, good contrast and perspective, beautiful colors,
Nice demonstrated, nicely captured the moment with the vehicle on the road.
Have a nice road and nature.
All the best in the new week that began, good luck.

The desert sceneries are always majestic, Chris, though missing a bit of green colors.
DOF through the trough shown immaculately, wild rocky terrain "interrupted" only with car, road and the cell-phone antenna-pole on the curve.
Fine POV, superior clarity.
My best regards,

Hello Chris ,
These arid mountains are really impressive . A gorgeous road , too .

La route envoie mon regard au loin ce qui donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails des montagnes. La bonne luminosité donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

La photo qui pourrait faire la couverture pour un livre qui nous ferait prendre la route. Les lignes offrent de la profondeur et la perspective sur le passage entre les montagnes est magique.

You chose a fantastic angle with the road and white traffic lines, with the curve tween the rocks
Nice depth and perspective.
Excellent presentation too.
Composition and presentation are perfect.
Very well done, TFS.

A modern road passing through wonderful desert moutnains and hills... I love that!
Very interesting and attractive picture!
I wish I can visit Egypt some day, in a more peaceful World!
TFS - congrats,

These kind of pictures always fascinates me. First the landscape. Here a beautiful yellow rock-formation, but second; what is behind, where will this road brings us. New adventures. I picture with a promise for the near future.

The road sends my eyes off what gives depth to the composition. Shooting can see the details of the mountains. The good brightness gives beautiful colors. simple and powerfull
