Egypt - May 18th, 2011

Sun glint causes Lake Nasser, on the border of Egypt and Sudan, to have a silvery gleam. The small southern part of the lake located in Sudanese territory is usually called Lake Nubia in Sudan.

One of the Toshka Lakes, near the left edge, also appears silvery from sun glint, while another further west is not directly reflecting the sun and appears blue.
