[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Nature in Egypt:
My last-year's bicycle travel through Jordan and the Southern tip of Israel brought me to the Sinai. Sinai is governed by a similar geological past as Jordan, with huge precambrian Sandstone deposits on a continental base (granite and basalt). No wonder do we find wadis and siqs formed by water and wind as in Wadi Rom. Here I present the Bashwashi Siq in the Nuwayba region which I was able to penetrate thanks to a knowledgeable guide. Siqs are usually filled with debris, making passage difficult. Debris can retain water bodies.
The historical and prehistorical East-West passages through Sinai follow the wider wadis and the coastal plains. The route that Moses and his people took through the Sinai peninsula is not known.

Hi Dietrich,the best perspective available from this sik close to Nuweiba,from this point of view it's easy to understand how is difficult the walk inside these red walls over the small river,absolutely great,very sharp and bright! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Dietrich this is great to see this
beautiful colours and great sharpness
thanks gr lou

Another beautiful POV picture and here exposure and details look great. Just not perfect timing and that man doesn't look good to me in nature photograph, IMHO. I wouldn't click here although ☺ due to the presence of leader which is although necessary.
Thanks for sharing
