Luxor - View Across the Nile River

Across the Nile River


View Across the Nile River from Luxor.

The Nile valley (Upper Egypt) is a narrow thread of cultivated land which varies from less than one to several miles in width. The desert and its mountains are seldom out of view. This particular view looks across a portion of the river onto the land with its green sugar cane fields. The long fronds of the date palm trees are visible in the mid- to far-distance. A lone farmer wearing a white galabiya strides along the river with his heavily-laden donkey. Looking across the Nile River, the rich agricultural fields stand in stark contrast to the empty desert.
