Desert Speed, Bahariya Oasis, Egypt

Photograph by Sima Diab


I took this shot while hanging out of a speeding 4X4 in the Bahariya Oasis of the Egyptian desert.

I kept my hand steady and saw the way the solid rock intermingled with the soft sand in a mound we were heading towards. The sun caught my eye and the clouds formed this wonderful dramatic display across the sky.

This was a one chance shot, it was either going to work or the speeding 4X4 was going to make the opportunity pass.
