    1. I remember that song very well, and I never particularly liked it....but it is an appropriate accompaniment to the Sahara photos.

  2. As I scrolled down this excellent selection, I remembered back to my teens when I first opened the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyám. The moving finger has obviously never lifted from the desert.

    1. I still have my copy of the Rubaiyat, which I got when I was in my teens, too. I'm inspired to read it again...

  3. A pic is worth a thousand words. BUT Something to be said though, for armchair traveling under the stars to such an exotic place. LOVE these scenes. BEAUTIFUL.

    1. I've always wanted to travel to exotic places, but lately the world has become a dangerous place. Armchair travel is satisfying - and relatively safe...

  4. Excellent! And the romantic flight of fantasy that is kindled of lounging on a roof top sanctuary of one of the walled homes of Riyadh

    1. I initially didn't think this post would be too interesting - but I can see that it awakened the romantic side in all of us.

  5. I love the nighttime shots, but the ones during the day just remind how hot it is in SC these past weeks.
    But at least in the Sahara it's a dry heat .......

    1. I love the night pics, too. After living in California and West Texas much of my life, I even hate the dry heat......

  7. Love these ... particularly, the silhouettes and moonscape. Difficult to believe, this is is 'everyday normal' for so many.

    1. Those dust storms remind me of the haboobs in Texas and Arizona.

  8. It would have been lovely to be around when travel to such an exotic location, if you were well heeled enough to afford it, was commonplace. I enjoyed all of the pictures, especially the one of the camel overlooking the moon. The wash station set up in the middle of the desert is quite ingenious. What fascinates me about the desert is that entire cities can be buried for hundreds of years, then become visible due to the shifting sands. Truly a magical, if harsh, environment.

    1. I always wanted to travel to exotic places, but - alas- the world has become a dangerous place (not to mention an expensive one).

      I hated living in West Texas, yet there was something intriguing and almost romantic about the dust storms and endless wind.

  9. with as hot and dry as it's been here in Georgia, those pics could have been taken here... (Just kidding; it isn't THAT bad... yet)

    Great photos. There's something romantic and exotic about shots taken in the desert, especially the ones at night. I bet tonight's meteor shower would look amazing from there.
