We slipped in to dock in Safaga in the early morning. The sun was just breaking through and the town was almost deserted.
One of the things we were to come used to in Egypt was the presence of checkpoints and machine-gun posts.
We drove straight out of the town and off into the dusty mountains.
The only life we could see was the odd dog scavenging in the rubbish.
As the sun came up to bathe the mountains in an orange glow.
There was something really beautiful about the barrenness of the desert mountains devoid of vegetation.
I love the way the shadows created pleats, folds and ruffles!
