Sudanese village from the air. Spare and sparse.

In response to the WPC: Spare
It looks like a heart on a beach, lovely colors.
What a wonderful observation, Stephanie! Thank you!
wow – looks so empty around ! my dream to visit, but definitely impossible with my passport.
It is hard to capture vastness or scale with a camera and after many years of living in the density of NYC, what such an uncrowded existence would be like…
I really like this. To me, the word “spare” was designed specifically to describe the beauty of the desert and your photo shows that wonderfully.
Thank you! The desert has always had an ominous quality for me – to live with such a precarious access to water certainly makes one aware of how much we take access to clean water for granted.
Wow, really compelling image. It looks almost like you’ve drawn over an image of the desert. Very cool!
Thanks. Those are the little compounds where people live with their livestock.

Thanks for sharing these photos. I would love to visit there, but probably never will. So, I’m glad you posted these.
Thanks for looking. Visiting is not so easy.
What a spectacular interpretation of ‘Spare’; I love it. You’ve earned my ‘Follow’.
Have an amazing day! 🙂
p.s. I love aerial shots too. Here are some for your viewing pleasure. https://yousufbawany.com/2013/10/15/in-flight-entertainment/
Thanks for visiting and for the compliment.
You’re very welcome.
Wondrous and wonderful!
Thanks. I think my favourite is the Landrover and the off-kilter street.
Brilliant photo. Reminds me of the times I’ve flown over the Sudan. The disturbing aspect of this photo is the lack of grazing or even trees around this village.
Yes – it is a stark and challenging landscape.
