The United Arab Republic (Egypt) is in the foreground.
The triangular-shaped area is the Sinai Penisula. Saudia Arabia is at the upper
right. The Mediterranean Sea is at the upper left. The Gulf of Suez separates
Egypt from the Sinai Peninsula. The Red Sea is at the bottom right. The Gulf of
Aqaba is the body of water in the center, separating the Sinai
Peninsula and Saudia Arabia. The Dead Sea, Sea of Galilee, Jordan
and Israel are in the top center of the picture. Iraq is at top right edge of the photograph.
An excellent panoramic view of the entire Sinai Peninsula (29.0N, 34.0E)
and the nearby Nile River Delta and eastern Mediterranean coastal region.
The Suez Canal, at the top of the scene just to the right of the Delta,
connects the Mediterranean Sea with the Gulf of Suez on the west side of
the Sinai Peninsula and the Gulf of Aqaba is on the west where they
both flow into the Red Sea. At upper right, is the Dead Sea, Jordan
River and Lake Tiberius.
