Photo Gallery: Scenes from the Sahara and Chott El Jerid in Tunisia
Posted by The Thing With Feathers - Laura Cook on January 5, 2013 in Visual Storytelling |
In the last week of 2012 I went to Tunisia with my husband and had the opportunity to spend an evening on the edge of the Sahara in Tunisia and then the next day woke up to travel two hours to the salt flats of Chott El Jerid. Both places provided beautiful light and wonderful scenes.
My husband travels in style in the desert!
Desert dwellers are accomplished horsemen.
Not something I would try but made for a good Sahara portrait!
My transport in the desert was a little more sedate than a camel. When I had my back turned I saw my horse and cart trundling off!
A faster way of getting about in the desert that backs onto the town of Douz.

My husband leaps for the sky as the sun rises the next day over the salt flats of Chott El Jerid
The salt flats provide a blank canvas as the sun begins to warm up the sky.
That top picture is an oh my god moment! Wow.
Great photography Laura!
Thanks so much Olivier and I hope 2013 is a great year for you!
Lovely images. I was travelling in Tunisia last spring, and you pictures really captures the mood of the Sahara landscape. Beautiful. I wish you all the best in the new year, Laura.
Thanks so much Otto, I was really surprised by how much I liked the scenery in Tunisia – an place that does not get promoted very much. I wish you all the best for 2013 too and look forward to more great blog posts!
WOW! Great captures and I can tell it was a great experience.
