Light of sunset over the horizon as seen from the Abu Simbel road in Egypt

Light of sunset over the horizon as seen from the Abu Simbel road in Egypt

The road from Aswan to Abu Simbel is a fairly wide road given the amount of traffic that is there on the road (very low traffic on the road except for the convoys of buses and other vehicles heading for the temple, along with security vehicles). The first convoy leaves early in the morning with the second convoy later in the morning (and when I say early in the morning, it meant that they would expect you to get up at 4:30 in the morning or so so that you are on time). This was a photo taken on the way back from Abu Simbel to Aswan, on the highway. There was a great sunset over the horizon and I really liked the way that the light seemed to spread over a section of the horizon, and with the clouds acting orange / red, it looked beautiful. Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to take too many photos since the driver of the vehicle was very reluctant to stop (apparently he had been warned by the police that no vehicles are expected to stop on the road, go non-stop from Aswan to Abu Simbel and then back).
