Reflection of the waters of the Red Sea off the shore of Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt

Reflection of the waters of the Red Sea off the shore of Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt

Being in Sharm el Sheikh is very different from the rest of the main places in Egypt (such as the Pyramids, Valley of the Kings, Abu Simbel, etc) in the sense that all these places show the monuments that highlight the prominence and importance of ancient Egypt (especially the power of the pharaohs and the architecture they had created so long back - 35 to 45 centuries back). Most visitors to Egypt come to see these monuments, and most tourist packages also highlight trips to such monuments; there are few such trips that tourists take to go visit Sharm el Sheikh. At the same time, there are a large number of tourists who do know about the attractions of Sharm el Sheikh, such as the temperate weather that does not go into the 40's that other parts of Egypt reach during the summer; the beaches, and most of all, the presence of the large number of marine life, drawn by the coral beaches (now under government protection to ensure that these natural structures do not get impacted in any way) that also provide venues for people to do snorkeling or scuba diving. This photo is a reflection of the Red Sea as seen in the window of one of the yachts that take tourists to the various scuba diving or snorkeling locations.
