White Desert, Egypt

Sunset in the White Desert, also known as Sahara el Beyda. The White Desert of Egypt is located 45 km north of Farafra, Egypt. The desert has massive chalk rock formations that have been created as a result of sandstorms in the area.

 

The sunset turns the colors of the white rocks into yellow, cream and orange tones.
