Algeria - December 27th, 2010

Several mountain ranges can be observed towering above the light Sahara Desert sands in this image of Algeria. The dark brown range in the upper right quadrant is the Tassili n’Ajjer.

The lighter brown mountains in the lower half of the image belong to the Ahaggar Range. In the full image, the ridges of these two ranges and the rows of sand dunes around them can be observed in greater detail.
