Photographer's Note

The White Desert is a protectorate, or national park, in central Egypt, seen here at sunrise. Oddly shaped wind-eroded monuments of chalky bright-white calcium carbonate jut upward all over the landscape. It's a little hard to judge the scale here so I'll guess that this structure is 8-10 meters (25-30 feet) high. If you go there, you will definitely want to camp overnight. But watch out for the small desert foxes that come out when it's dark--they will rob your campsite!
