Photo of the Day (1.5.10)

Today’s Photo of the Day comes from contributor muddynights. The natural light, composition, and layering in the photo are well captured, which really puts the proximity of the mountains and sea in perspective.

The photo was shot on the Sinai Peninsula – the official land bridge between Africa and Asia – which lies atop the Red Sea. Over the past 30 years, the Sinai has become a tourist destination due to its natural setting, rich coral reefs, and biblical history.
