Daily Photo - Gilf Kebir

For reasons unknown, the only photos of Egypt that I have stored on my laptop are of the Gilf Kebir, so it was a choice of giving you more photos of north Wales, a rather nice collection from Italy, or photos of the Western Desert! So the Gilf it is. I'm sure that I have posted some of these before but you'll just have to bear with me!

This is a shot of Eight Bells. For those of you unfamiliar with the site, this is the north arrow at the WW2 airfield used by the Long Range Desert Group, just to the east of the Gilf Kebir, marked out in fuel cans. Archaeology comes in all forms.
