Beautiful Desert landscapes of the World

Deserts, Sand dunes, and their inhabitants don't get much coverage but they could be mind-blowing beautiful.

So post pics from the world of Desert that many of us may never witness in person.

Here is Ubari Sand sea, Fezzan, Libya

Stony forest, Site of Jabbaren, Tray
(Plateau) of the Tassili N' Ajjer, Algeria (24°28'N N - 9°47'E E).
The site of Jabbaren appears as a city with its perpendicular main avenues, its places, its multiple streets and alleys... Jabbaren is one of these most important "stony forests" of the Tassili N' Ajjer, natural reserve registers on the UNESCO world heritage list in 1982. Their landscapes always present an aspect of engraved stoneware, affected and sculptured by the wind, the sand and the water. But their interest is not that aesthetic or geologic. Tassili N' Ajjer is one of the vaster whole prehistoric rock art of the world. More than 15 000 drawings and engravings allow to follow, since 6 000 BC until first centuries AD, the changes of the climate, the migrations of the fauna and the evolution of the human life in the borders of Sahara there.

Algeria

The Ahaggar Mountains (Tuareg: idurar uhaggar), also known as the Hoggar, are a highland region in central Sahara, or southern Algeria near the Tropic of Cancer. They are located about 1,500 km (900 mi) south of the capital, Algiers and just west of Tamanghasset. The region is largely rocky desert with an average altitude of more than 900 metres (2,953 feet) above sea level. The highest peak is at 3,003 meters (Mount Tahat). Assekrem is a famous and often visited point where le Père de Foucauld lived in the summer of 1905.
