Photographer's Note

The previous upload was about 5 km from Safaga. This one in much further away around the 70 km mark. Roadside cafes are a long way apart in this barren and inhospitable landscape of the eastern Sahara. There are no towns. The small settlements and gas stops are just named after how many km they are from the nearest civilization. eg My first stop departing the Nile Valley was simply called '85 km'. Notice how the mountains trap the sand. In the Gobi, sand dunes run parallel to the mountains and are over 500 km long but onky 3-4 km wide. Most deserts are rock and pebbles rather than sand.
