Eastern Desert, Egypt

Postby Swifty » Tue 06 Nov, 2012 8:58 pm

Had a recent trip to the Eastern Desert / Red Sea hinterland in Egypt. Fortunate enough to have a desert pass allowing access into the area. Here's a couple of snaps of this bleak region.
Shots all with Mamiya 6, 50mm, souped at home and scanned on Epson V750.

Yeah, in black and white it looks like it could be a glacier/freezing temps. Interesting.
