وَاحَة و بِحُيْرَة أَم الْمَاء

Explored ( May 10, 2010 #277 )

 

The best time to see this clear and fully reflections of this Oasis Lake is from 45 to 10 minutes before the sunset or early in the morning, but should not exceed 45 minutes after the sunrise ...

 

You may think that the photo is just a photoshop mirror effect, But the scene as it is from the camera directly ..

 

The name of this Oasis Lake is Umm Al-Ma'a ( Arabic: وَاحَة و بِحُيْرَة أَم الْمَاء ) ( English translation is " The Mother of Water " ), it's located in the heart of the Awbari desert ....

 

one of some strange things on this lake is the Water of the lake, it's too salty .. But if you drilled a Water well a few meters from the lake you will got a fresh water

 

Wadi Al-Haya, Libya !
