Sunset in the Sahara

Thought for the day…..” The optimist seems opportunity in every danger, the pessimist sees danger in every opportunity”

“Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it”.

Said to be the World’s largest sand desert, the Sahara is about the same size as the USA, and covers about 30% of Africa.  Antartica and the Artic are larger deserts, but the Sahara is the largest hot desert.  Temperatures in summer can reach up to 57 degrees and some of the sand dunes can reach up to 180m, although the Sahara also includes volcanic mountains as well (the highest point is 3415m at Emi Koussi).     The name ‘Sahara’ comes from the Arabic plural word for deserts.   Seen here is the edge of the Sahara at sunset in Morocco.   The photo was taken with an early digital camera (Olympus) many years ago.
