Photographer's Note

Fortunately this was no mirage and was very real. It's the swimming pool I talked about in a previous upload. Temperatures were hitting 45c in the western Sahara in August. When I turned on the cold water tap in my room I got hot water. The groundwater used for this pool is cool. The rooms had no aircon or fans and remained hot until early morning.

This area of sand dunes is actually quite small. The sand dune fields in neighboring Algeria to the east are around 10 to 15 times bigger in area.
