Sand Dunes

Sand Dunes Dune types A barchan (pronounced bar-KAN) dune, sometimes known as a crescentic dune, is a crescent or U-shaped dune that has its “horns” or tips pointing downwind or away from the wind. Barchans arise where sand supply is limited, where the ground is hard, and where wind direction is fairly constant. They form around shrubs or larger rocks, which act as anchors to hold the main part of the dune in place while the tips migrate with the wind. Barchan dunes occur widely in deserts around Earth.

White Desert

White Desert The White Desert (known as Sahara el Beyda, with the word Sahara meaning a desert). The White Desert of Egypt is located 45 km (30 miles) north of Farafra. The desert contains a white, cream color and has massive chalk rock formations that have been created as a result of occasional sandstorms in the area. These wind-sculpted forms look deceptively close to a gallery of ice-sculptures amidst this very hot desert backdrop.

Waterscape

Waterscape The Northern coast of Egypt extends for about 1050 km (652 miles) from Rafa’h to the east, on the Egyptian-Palestinian border, to Sallum in the west, on the Egyptian-Libyan border. The coastline borders both the Arabian desert and the Sahara, including the Suez Canal and the Nile delta as the northern gateway to Africa. Before the advent of commercial airliners flying directly through Cairo, the Nile and the Gulf of Suez were the main transportation areas for travel further into the African continent, from Europe and Asia.

Stage

Stage Stage photography is a collection of shots conveying harmony and expression through motion; where body language is the essence and vehicle of the captured emotions. This liberal form of expression transmits emotional impact on each recipient as it is perceived subjectively by the viewer.

Abstract

Abstract Abstract art Photography uses a visual language of form and color to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from objects or visual references in the world. By taking the essence of the photo or a portion of the photo and by using color and or the form in an aesthetic arrangement or combination, the photographic abstraction becomes art. Expressions in this category are derived from my own view point.

Pharaonic

Pharaonic Ancient Egypt was an ancient civilization of eastern North Africa, concentrated along the lower reaches of the Nile River in what is now the modern state of Egypt. The civilization coalesced around 3150 BC[1] with the political unification of Upper and Lower Egypt under the first pharaoh, and it developed over the next three millennia.[2] Its history occurred in a series of comparatively stable periods, labeled by scholars today as Kingdoms, separated by periods of relative instability known as Intermediate Periods.
