Photographer's Note

With the fall approaching, and the more pleasant weather with it, tourists start go tresspass the desert in searching for adventures or solitude. Imagine their surprise, when instead of a vast, silent, unpopulated, untouched by man place, they come across these miles-long lines and dozing machines?!? They probably are regreting the trip. I can see why...

These lines are required by the seismic exploration for Oil and Gas, and are crucial for finding it. These opened accesses are used by big and heavy specialised vehicles, called vibrators. They crawl in the remotest places of the world.

The dunes will gain their normal outlook in a several month's time, due to the strong winter winds in Sahara. We do not touch the gravel surface.

Added some grains, overlay blending, and increased contrast to facilitate your glimpse.
