Cloud cover over the temples of Abu Simbel in south Egypt

Cloud cover over the temples of Abu Simbel in south Egypt

The area where the temple of Abu Simbel looks a bit barren. There is the River Nile flowing through the area, but as soon as you move a bit away from the river, you will come across mostly barren land and blue skies. So it was a bit surprising when I saw this cloud cover all over the area, and there is even a hint of dark cloud near the front of the photo, that could indicate a possibility of rain. However, in the couple of hours that we were there, we did not see any rain at the site and everything remained barren except for the greenery that was planted at the site. I spoke to a couple of people over there and they also claimed that there was very little rainfall at this site, even though there was a river flowing there and there was also the presence of Lake Nasser.
