Red Sea - April 28th, 2012

Dust hangs in the Red Sea over the Dahlak Archipelago (Ge’ez), an island group located in the Red Sea near Massawa, Eritrea (visible along the shores of the Red Sea in the lower part of the image). The arcipelago consists of two large and 124 small islands. Only four of the islands are permanently inhabited, of which Dahlak Kebir is the largest and most populated. The islands are home to a diverse marine life and sea-birds.
