The Nile

Since returning from Egypt I’ve often commented that it is the most picturesque country I’ve ever visited.  This sensation is primarily due to time spent cruising and photographing the Nile.  What a visual treat!  Experiencing the stillness of the river at sunrise or its rich colors during sunset, the colorful villages, the palm trees and mosque minarets that rise from the banks, the fertile valleys and friendly curious people all along the way was truly awesome.  It is little wonder Egypt is commonly referred to as the “gift of the Nile”; without it desert would fill the landscape.  Below are a few photographs.

Note: The Nile is the longest river in the world flowing north from central Africa to the Mediterranean Sea. Sunrise – Nile River, Egypt
