Caption: Landsat mosaic of the River Nile & delta, in the United Arab Republic, or Egypt. The river is the fine black line surrounded on either side by a veneer of vegetation appearing red. The city of Cairo (grey/blue) lies at the start of the delta where the river divides into two main branches & heads out to the Mediterranean Sea. Beyond the fertile banks of the Nile the landscape is barren desert. The black body of water to the right is the Gulf of Suez narrowing into the Suez Canal. The western edge of the Sinai is visible at right of the Suez Canal.
