|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is a re-post of my 3rd posting on TL. I know I've learned something about photography & WS since then.|
The Sahara, with a size of 8.6 million km², is the world's largest desert, covering large parts of North Africa. Around 4 million people live here. Its maximum length is 4,800 km, running from west to east, and up to 1,200 km from north to south. Sahara covers most of Mauritania, Western Sahara, Algeria, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Chad, Niger and Mali, and touches Morocco and Tunisia. To the north, Sahara is bordered by the Atlas Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea; in the west by the Atlantic Ocean; in the south, the desert zone reaches 16º northern latitude; in the east it is bordered by the Nile. Still the desert continues to the east of the river until it reaches the Red Sea, but this is not considered a part of the Sahara. Sahara is very dry but there is an annual rainfall in most regions, although just a few dozens of millimetre. Sahara has a subtropical climate in its northern parts, and a tropical one in the south. Winters in the north are cold to cool; in the south, mild. Summers are hot all over the desert. The highest temperature every recorded is 58ºC in Aziziyah, Libya. There is very little rain in the northern parts, virtually nothing in the east, although more in the south. Most rain falls throughout the summer, followed by some scarce winter rain.

Quelques personnes coincées entre sable à la jolie couleur ocre et ce ciel si bleu, les deux couleurs se marient à merveille et ces gens semblent se plaire à regarder les changements de vagues qui sans cesse modifient le paysage saharien!!!
A neat image well presented and strong contrasting colours.The small figures of visitors in relation to the enormity of the desert is wel portrayed in this shot, well done.

A very sharp image from an agreeable POV. Quite a considerable DOF!
The group of people in the center of the picture is giving life and continuity to the presentation leading to the far back crowd!
A beautiful sand scape with amazing contrast colors,original composition and the people adds a sense of the scale for the Sahara desrt.
Nice saturation of tone of colors,
good perpective and details.
