That's beautiful. The one question I have is why the barren sand comes so close to the river. AFAIK the land right along the river valley was so fertile it was called "black" and made Egypt the grainary of the Roman Empire.

The modern Nile Valley is rapidly losing its fertility ever since the river was dammed, so that photo might not even capture how it used to be. But I haven't researched this subject.

Regardless, the new map is lovely.
