I just realized that this was the first time I am uploading an image using 100 500. And also uploading an image after a long time. Anyway; now about the image.

Egypt has a place with massive sand dunes. That is called the Great Sand Sea. That place was accessible when I went to this region first time way back in 2010. However; after that the revolution happened and now that region is managed by Egyptian armed forces. So it is strictly off limit for civilians. So I was a bit sad and asked our local guide how to get some sand dunes. So he suggested this place. This is like the last part of the great sand sea. Initially I was not sure what to expect. But when I saw it; wow; it was beautiful.

Fact is; you don't really needs 100s of kilometers of sand to enjoy a desert or capture a beautiful image.

I was eying this composition from the start. In fact the search was for the sunrise. But then I observed my wife was waring this white dress and there was some wind. So I asked her to go on and walk for me a bit as otherwise during normal day the place looked a but less contrasty and the scale of it was not getting clear.

At the end I was happy with the result so thought of sharing with you all.

I have also captured a pretty detailed video of our visit to this less visited location of Egypt with all details needed to visit this place. You can find that here.

Please have a look at my website www.avisekhphotography.com for all my recent works.

Have a nice weekend.

Hope you will enjoy the picture.

Any suggestions or criticisms are always welcome.

In the forest behind the village where I live, autumn has hit hard in the last few days and almost all the leaves from the old oak and beech trees have fallen to the ground. At the latest when the nights started to get frosty, it happened impressively fast.
Now the forest floor is covered with a really thick carpet of leaves. The layer seems to be at least 10 cm thick and it feels really good to walk over it.
Every year there are such avalanches of leaves here and yet the forest is almost cleaned up again by next autumn. It's really impressive how much nature can use within a year and feed it back into the cycle. Another miracle that I would like to acknowledge here.

Im Wald hinter dem Dorf in dem ich wohne hat der Herbst in den letzten Tagen mächtig zugeschlagen und so ziemlich alle Blätter von den alten Eichen und Buchen zu Boden gebracht. Spätestens als die Nächte begannen frostig zu werden ging das beeindruckend schnell.
Nun ist der Waldboden von einem wirklich dicken Teppich aus Blättern bedeckt. Die Schicht scheint mindestens 10 cm dick zu sein und es fühlst sich richtig gut an darüber zu laufen.
Jedes Jahr gibt es hier solche Lawinen von Blättern und trotzdem ist der Wald bis zum nächsten Herbst fast wieder aufgeräumt. Ist schon echt beeindruckend welche Mengen die Natur innerhalb eines Jahres verwerten und dem Kreislauf wieder zuführen kann. Ein weiteres Wunder, was ich hier einmal würdigen möchte.
