Egypt – January 17th, 2013

A cloud of smoky haze hangs over the eastern Mediterranean Sea, from the edge of the Nile Delta and Suez Canal, in Egypt, past the coastline of the Sinai Peninsula, to the shores of Israel/Palestine. Inland, a stark contrast can be observed between the green of the Nile Delta and Nile River Valley, as well as the Faiyum Oasis (lower left), and the mostly desert terrain flanking the river and on the peninsula.
