Last week, I was in Egypt again in the Red Sea resort town of Marsa Alam. The waters of the Red Sea was blue, and so were the skies. I have some pictures of the blue waters of the Nile and the Red Sea in a brief post here.

These are pictures that were shot while on a road journey from Port Ghalib, Marsa Alam, to the ancient city of Thebes, Luxor. The swaying grass encouraged me to step out of an air-conditioned vehicle to take a few shots from the roadside in spite of the high summer temperatures and bright noon-time light when good photography is not possible.
