Conributor Etch created this marvelous bird's eye view of Siwa Oasis in Egypt's great Western Desert, a part of the great Sahara. It's located just a few km/mi from the country's border with neighboring Libya to the west. It's considered the most remote part of Egypt, North Africa's largest country by population. The oasis was named for a famous oracle and was once known as Oasis of Amun Ra. It's believed that the area was settled in the tenth millennium BC.
