Rainbow over Route 40 in Western Argentina

The loneliest road in the world that I've  driven through is Route 40 in Western Argentina, which stretches 5000 kilometers from La Quiaca in Jujuy Province in the north, to Rio Gallegos in Santa Cruz Province in the South. Running parallel to the Andes Mountains, its height at Rio Gallegos in the south is at sea level. It passes through 20 national parks, 18 major rivers, 27 passes in the Andes, and it reaches a height of 5000 meters or 16,404 feet at Abra del Acay in Salta.

Pyramids of Mero

The ancient Pyramids of Mero in Sudan below, are not as well known, and not as much visited as the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, but some of them are much older than the Pyramids of Giza..

I'm thinking of returning to Bangladesh. Bangladesh is beautiful in winter, with fields of yellow blooming mustard flowers stretching for miles and miles around, and as  far as  one can see. Here's a photo of a Bangladeshi  mother with her two kids in a field of yellow mustard flowers.

Kom Ombo on the Nile

Below is the ancient Temple of the Falcon God Horus, and the Crocodile God Sebek, at Kom Ombo beside the Nile in Egypt. And the one below this is the sunset at Nirvana beach in Java. The best time for photography are the two hours before sunset and the two hours after dawn. The directional light creates texture and depth for your subjects. I shot the Kom Ombo photo in 2004, and the Nirvana beach photo in 2012.
