Desert Lake, Sinai
Egypt

This little lake of water was formed after the enormous rain storm that hit the Red Sea coast on the night of the 17th January 2010, a very rare event. Even more than one month later some of the water was still there, resulting in a thin layer of fresh green in many parts of the otherwise sandy desert.
