SIWA
Sunset over the Libyan Desert

If you have the chance, try to get a quiet moment with the sunset, preferrably at the outskirts of the desert. It is a magic moment to see the sun go down over vast sand dunes. During a few minutes the sun burns up before leaving only a dark pink curtain over the landscape.

Sunset, with Birket Siwa and the desert.
